Today was one of those days I wanted to get out and explore. In my earlier years I use to ride with a friend and it seemed like all roads led to Allentown. I new a round trip ride would be approximately 50 miles. I took a direct but scenic route and thought I would explore different roads on the return trip. The weather was just too fine and I decided why not go to Bordentown. It is a very old, quaint and most importantly a revitalized town, with modern restaurants, shops and renovated town houses. It had been many years since I road out there and I was not 100% sure how to get there. I found some event markings on the road and followed them eventually getting me into town. I continued to follow those markings for the ride back when I found myself back on the route that took me there. I turned off on some vaguely familiar road. Things were starting to come back to me and I was feeling the adventure in cycling I remembered. I came across another cyclist who waved me down. He was curious about my trike and was amazed at my intended mileage. We talked for a while and as he road off on his nice Trek road bike, I noticed he was wearing regular hiking shorts, sneakers and regular pedals. He was just out enjoying this beautiful day on his bike. I smiled and continued on my way through back roads I almost forgot. 50 miles into the ride I saw a familiar wave. It was my wife on her way to Allentown to see a client. The last 20 miles were on very familiar roads as I was getting tired. 70 miles total for what was an outstanding cycling day.
