Bike Ride Tour

Hubby and I went on a bike ride tonight. We started off just wanting to go on a short ride and before we knew it, 45 minutes had flown by. This time, I pushed us to finish it out at an hour. We did it and here are the results!

I like to see higher calorie burns. I don’t usually workout for more than 1/2 hour at a time. I brought the camera and snapped a few shots here and there to show you some parts of where we ride.
We really are surrounded by corn fields out here in Iowa. :)

This is a shot along the trail, facing our town:

This is the spot we usually stop at, one mile out, on our evening rides. This trail goes on for miles in the country.

This is where the trail ends on the other side of town. The part of the trail across town is paved, a much easier ride than the gravel parts!

The inevitable Iowa cows on the city limits:

At the end of the trail looking back across town:

Another country scene. It seems to stretch on forever, doesn’t it?:

This Iowa life is new to me. I grew up a big city girl. But Hubby grew up here, so when we got married, I moved here. We compromised by living in a small town. A little country, a little town. :) So there ya have it, a little piece of where I’m from. The ride felt so great! I’m proud of us for going a whole hour!


  1. Great watch if I can still call it that. Things are so high tech now. Thank you so much for sharing those wonderful pictures. Life seems so peaceful there. I would love to live in a place like that. The big city can be so overwhelming. Thanks again for sharing and great job on your ride with the hubby.

  2. Nice watch! Its so good to keep a track of calories burned.

    Love the pictures too! Very beautiful!Maybe you've discovered your hidden talent!

  3. Thanks for the pictures! I forgot how flat Iowa is LOL (we used to live in IL).

  4. You are an artist.
