Musings about fun between my legs

Sunny Florida


There is a foot of snow in the Indianapolis area, but Don and I have escaped to The Villages, Florida, warmly welcomed by our tandem friends Ray and Linda Cannarella.

On December 26th, it snowed all day, dropping 8 inches.  We completed errands on Thursday, then headed out of town early Friday morning.  The dusting that was forecast for Friday afternoon in Indianapolis, turned into 4 more inches.  Those conditions are certainly not conducive to outdoor biking.

When we arrived on Saturday afternoon, I unpacked, then went out for a 14 mile spin.  The sun was glorious.  And the sun continued this afternoon (Sunday), though the thermometer didn’t get above 50 degrees.  I could have done with less wind, but it is a good training experience.

Don is fighting a cold, so we haven’t been on the tandem yet – planned for tomorrow.  I am hoping to bike every day we are here, maybe even two-a-days, on the tandem in the morning, the single after lunch.  No hill training, but good for legs and bottom.  Happy cyclist!
