I biked to work again today - it started out cold and cloudy so I wore my gloves, ear muffs and fleece but by this afternoon it was a gorgeous sunny day. Biking to work following the Campbell Creek trail (upstream) is slightly uphill the whole way, but coming home (downstream) is downhill all the way and a much easier ride.
I had a slight accident on the way to work, just after we left the house. Sweetie was about 20 feet in front of me and jumped his bike up onto the sidewalk over a rounded curb. I hollered out, "I don't think I can jump the curb." He hollered back, "then don't. Stop and walk it up." I didn't want to stop and he made it look so easy so I thought I'd just give it a try. Epic fail! I need to remember that I am older than I used to be and don't have quite the same coordination as my younger self or my in-shape husband. Long story short, I scraped my cheek on the sidewalk and grass, got some sand in my mouth, sprained two fingers, and bruised both knees.

|Duh...do you think this sign is really necessary now?|
|Last hill before I get home - I walked up it today because my hand and knees were hurting. It's fun to go down in the morning though!|
