30 Days of Biking - Days 11 & 12

I went on a couple of rides on Saturday, the first one being in the morning to The Park Center to get some things ready for the Couderay Waters Wild & Scenic Film Festival matinee. It was a beautiful morning for a ride.
After the matinee, Mike and I rode with Iras back to her house, and then turned around to head back home for the evening show of the Film Festival at The Park.
Sunday began with watching a live feed of the Paris-Roubaix professional bicycle race, one of the most well-known of the Spring Classics. Iras & Charlie joined us for breakfast and the race, after which we went on a ride to visit our friend, Tysa.
It was another beautiful day, with temperatures reaching the low 70s, but very windy and gusty with 30 mph winds and 40 mph gusts at one point. Our route went up this hill on the way out...
...and down this same hill on the way back home. Hills never look as steep as they are in photographs.
We passed a cranberry bog on County T during our ride.
There were some colorful cranberries lying on the ground next to the bog.
