Spring is in the Air
Some years ago I used to ride with a couple of friends. At lunch one day we got on the topic of what we think about while riding. I think about writing up my ride story, I think of the many ways to describe the ride, and what pictures I'll want to accompany it. My friend, the newbie at the time, said she concentrated on her bike, the road and improving her skills. The third rider added, "I think about green". "It sure is green". LOL. I guess I'm a deep thinker. But I have to agree with him this time of year...green, where is the green? I'm ready to see something besides snow banks, how about you?
Thanks goodness for the ADV tag-o-rama for getting my butt out of the house. Too gloomy in there. Too nice out here!
This past weekend was the first long ride of the spring weekend. The scenery is barren and dirty, yards are littered with branches from the December ice storm.
And apparently you can't go looking for buds at the Wachusett Dam either.
I did spot this treat just off the road, couldn't get much closer...I was already trespassing.
There was beauty to be found in the woods earlier in the month. The beauty of a spring thaw.
Let's hope that spring is really here so I can start riding more, thinking more and smiling more! Hope your riding season has begun too!
