Mrs. Z visits The Darkside !

Well it has been such a blast watching my wife reach new milestones riding her bike. She's now comfortable riding out on her own and is getting out at least 3 days a week. As she said the other day she really feels like she is getting stronger and she's feeling better. So today I invited her to take a little trip to The Darkside to check out some new terrain. She's more comfortable on the smoother old dirt roads and it was great seeing her try something new. We ended up rolling out for her longest ride to date, a tad over 14 miles. For me it's just a blast getting to spend time with her enjoying this great sport that I've been doing for 40+ years.

She's getting out for an average of 9 miles on her weekday rides, and now she wants to expand to different terrain.

Really proud of her !
