The best part of riding in Herndon was finding these little paths that would just appear out of nowhere on the side of the road and take you through some of the most fun trail riding through the woods ever and pop you out back into a neighborhood or onto a main road. Exploring as many of these as I could, became one of my main adventures during my morning rides.
This one kept crisscrossing a stream, which made for some wet freezing feet after barreling through the crossing. It was never deep, or running fast, it just made you feel like a kid splashing through puddles. I really can’t wait to come back in summer and hit this trail when the water is warm!
What an amazing trip. Mel and I just spent the last week in her home town of Herndon,VA. We were visiting her family and meeting the newest members of the Seeger clan, two cute as hell twin boys. While those visits were the main highlights of the trip, another great aspect for me was riding. I woke early and went for 20 to 40 miler every morning, through hills and dales, on road and off. I brought the LOW, since I really don’t get a chance to ride it that much in LA, but after this trip, that is gonna change. I really fell in love with this frame and build during my daily rides. The LOW handled everything that was thrown in front of it, gobbling the road, dirt and mud! It was a killer time and I can’t wait to come back and see Mel’s family and put rubber back on these Virginia roads.
Just got back from an amazing ride with Melanie. We did 30 miles of mixed dirt and road, through woods and small towns. It was such a good time and with the best riding companion a guy could ask for. It’s gonna be hard to go back to work on Friday. We got two more days to get in as much riding as we can…
It’s Monday and I have been having the time of my life riding Track bikes in Herndon, VA. Dirt roads, back wood country roads, single track paths through creeks, bike paths, quarry roads and just getting lost. I hope the rest of you had a great weekend and more posts will becoming, but for now I have to get ready for the next ride!!!
Mel and I road to D.C. yesterday. It was amazing. 28+ miles of pure Bicycle path bliss through the woods to D.C. and then road back to her parents house, after we saw the sites of the Capital. It was a great day of ridin and seeing very epic sites. Enjoy these photos!
It was a wet, rainy day yesterday in VA. Mel and I choose to do some touristy shit with this down day. Enjoy this snaps from our fun day running around to Air and Space Mueseum Annex, Unique Thrift store (big ass thrifting), the mall and the Potomac river. Tomorrow we ride to DC, rain or shine!
Mel and I have been riding around her hometown of Herndon, VA for the last few days. Great town, super fun riding. Traffic is nice and easy and there are tons of cycle paths criss-crossing the area/ town. Next time we come, I’m bringing a road bike (country roads for days) or a cross bike (there tons of dirt paths/ trails). Here a few snap shots of our first solid day of riding. Enjoy.
