Today we went to a local trail that was converted from unused railroad tracks. It’s a loop that is farther than I’m sure, but it’s called the Lake Apopka Loop. We started down the trail and really didn’t set out to do a full 20 miles, it was the first time we had all four bikes on the carrier (which was a bit of a Rubik’s cube) and on this particular trail. 20 miles it is.
Three hours later, and at almost complete exhaustion, we returned to the trail head where we started out. If you look at the map to the right, we did the yellow line, back and forth 10-miles each way.
At the 1/2 way point cramps had already set in, by the time we reached the last incline before the trail head none of us had any drive left. Hopefully the next time I take on a twenty-mile trek it won’t be so far.
What a great day for a ride, kind of chilly, definitely not hot however it felt like we rode into the wind going in both ways.
Great day, great ride.
