Longest Bike Ride Ever

Yesterday, to celebrate Independence Day (observed), we went to Crane Beach up in Ipswich. Avoiding the hottest part of the day, we went mid-afternoon and stayed until early evening. It was a good day to be at the beach, but the ocean water there, Brrrr! still cold.

The rest of the family drove the van up, but crazy me, I rode my bike. It should have been 34 miles, but I took an unintended, extended tour of Lynn, and made it 37 miles. Thanks to an anonymous biker and a resident of Lynnfield St. for setting me back on my intended path.

That makes it, I’m pretty certain, the longest ride I’ve done in one “sitting.”
