a lovely fall bike ride

lately, because of the ugly snow and rain, i felt like i haven't been giving my bike much attention. so today i took her on a fun little ride. mainly to pass the time before the mail comes, i'm awaiting a rather large check :)

i live smack dab in the middle of a hill and so i could either go down the hill, but then i would have to eventually climb that monsterous beast. or i could go up the hill and then cruise down after.
i chose the second option. but instead of riding straight up wasatch i took the neighborhood route. the hills aren't as steep. but don't get me wrong, climbing hills on a bike that has only one gear... not so easy. but i did it! all the way up! i chose such a warm day to go, so cruising down the hill was a joy.

this time of year is perfect for a bike ride though. and i live in such a beautiful area, it was fun riding toward the huge gorgeous mountains. and riding down tree lined streets that have gathered the fallen leaves. i love riding over the leaves and hearing them crunch!
and i love fall! the weather lately has been perfect. i don't want it to end.
