Twenty Miles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Little Orange Wildflowers on the W&OD trail

I’ve already made my goal for this biking season! I wanted to make 20 miles before we put the bikes away, and here we are in August, with two good biking months left, and I’ve already made that goal. Yay me!

Andrew and I both agreed that we felt that we could have kept biking a bit more, so I think we’re going to make a new goal for the end of the season: 25 miles. Go us!

We biked the same route we did last weekend &#150 started at Andrew’s work in Herndon and biked the W&OD trail toward Ashburn. We went an extra mile and a half past where we stopped last week.

Most exciting thing to happen biking so far (yup, even more exciting than the bee in my ear): Just after we turned around, a deer, who had presumably been sleeping in the brush near the trail, got up right next to me, ran in front of my bike and across the trail. I was quite startled, and screamed, because I thought I was going to run into the little guy &#150 he was a little guy, too, as he still had spots.

Total miles: 20.1 miles (!!)

Congratz on the 20 mile goal. Sounds like you’ll easily make the 25 by the end of biking season.
