When Hubby Tony and I woke up this morning the sky was blue and the temperature was perfect; we decided it was a great day for a bike ride. After breakfast he put the bikes and helmets in the car and we headed towards a new-to-us trail along Clayton Road in the city of Town & Country, slightly northeast of our house.
This section of Clayton is popular with bicyclists, and there were a lot of them out today--riding singly or in groups. They wore fancy spandex shorts and form fitting jerseys. In contrast, Tony and I wore t-shirts and loose-fitting bottoms. The 'real' bikers traveled quickly on the right edge of the traffic lane, stopping only at the lights. On our trail there were stop signs at every subdivision entrance, so we had to slow down and look for cars at each of them. We also had to navigate around several people walking their dogs.
We rode from one end to the other, then turned around. On the way back I noticed several side roads that that I'd like to try sometime.
