10 mile bike ride again at the Lake!

United States
July 31, 2017 11:46pm CST
My fiancé and I have been biking everyday at the lake! We started off doing just 5 miles, now we're doing 10 miles! We hope to do 15 miles sometime this week. It's a beautiful view riding around the lake, though some parts are hotter but it balances out. We usually spend a hour and half or two hours at the lake! I am getting darker already! We saw lots of other bikers, walkers, joggers and some birds, rabbits and fishes. We made a stop along the way to hang out at the dock after our ride too where I took a panorama photo (but cropped the background for location privacy reasons).

Glad you're getting some use. I've known a few that bought a bike and never rode it.

Oh no! I don't want to be that person I was hesitate on getting a bike, but why not! The lake is just a couple minutes away so we should take advantage of it! Some people drive long ways to just have a walk. :)

@infatuatedbby - Yeah, you've just gotta take advantage of having a lake that close.

@teamfreak16 Yes! It's really close but we don't bike there because it's dangerous intersections (freeways) and most are in a rush home during the time we go

Getting around the lake is nice and relaxing. Unfortunately, where I live, there are no lakes nearby. I can go instead to the sea

The sea is lovely too! I go to the beach also but for hiking or walking : light jogging not to bike.

Don't mind getting dark. Tan is beautiful! Does your bike have a speedometer?

No I do not keep track of how many miles. But the lake has markers around.

@infatuatedbby I used to be the same. I didn't have a speedometer and I just refer to the marks in each town that we passed by. But having one is really useful so you can check your speed and the calories you burn. Phone is not that accurate. If you have a plan to burn calories using your bike, it's increasing the speed even at a shorter distance that matters. Cycling on a hill helps too.

@toniganzon i don't have a phone mount yet ! I do see other bikers use their phones and it'll talk to them saying you've hit x amount of miles. Maybe a speedometer will be my next purchase :)

You two are doing great. There are a lot of people where I live that rides a bike everywhere. A lot of them are older people with the older style bikes. It is fun to watch them. We also have a lot of bikers come in and ride their bikes out to the wineries and other places. Maybe I need to get another bike and join them.

That sounds like fun! I see some older couples riding together or in the two seater bike cruising the lake! Some in unique types of bikes too enjoying life :)

The lake has markers around to let us know what we've reached but in order to get back to our car it's 5 miles

That picture is beautiful. Wow great to hear you are both having so much fun. Good for you! It's been years since I've ridden a bicycle. But they say once you've done it you can always do it. So do you guys live on the lake? We have a lake above us within walking distance, but we don't go for walks. I'm not really an outdoors type of person, I take after my Mother God bless her heart. She just lost vision in her left eye I feel so bad for her but all I can do is pray!
