30 Days of Biking 2016 Day 4

It was 43 degrees F at 4:34 pm and I was off
to Meadowbrook on Rhododendron!
This past winter was mild, but I’ve been slow to get out and cycle as much as I’d like; glad for 30 Days of Biking to get me going, especially if I’d missed the early morning window.

So here is a quick report.

Straight to Meadowbrook, past the traffic lights at Windsor Road, picked out a weeping cherry (?) with few but lovely blossoms against the sky.

Coasted over the rabbit-statue bridge and noticed a broken tree.

Wondered what that event sounded like.

Got my customary shot of the confluence of McCullough/Davis creeks.

And then rode quickly around the park on the “big loop.”

Almost back to Windsor Road, beheld the path through the prairie with sky above, with bike for the daily 30 Days of Biking “tweet.”

On the way home, stopped on the bike lane for a look at a very full-flowered pink magnolia.

It was short but as always a point of awareness and so gratitude.

About Velo du Jour

I am a 61 year old mom/wife, former biologist, and presently certified Iyengar yoga teacher, and I love, besides biking (and other things), nature, swimming, drawing, photography, yarn, exploring adoption themes, and putting people at ease. In April 2012, I participated in "30 Days of Biking "http://30daysofbiking.com/ on Twitter, sponsored by a group of "joyful cyclists" in Minneapolis during the month of April. I loved tweeting about each day's ride so much I didn't want to stop! "Velo du Jour" is a continuation of recording and sharing my rides post-30 Days of Biking.
