Cycling the Olive Loop

August 5, 2010 21:33 by colin

On my bike ride this evening I did the "Olive Road" loop, which thanks to Google Maps' new "Cycle Route" feature, I can tell you is a 9.4 mile trip. It took me 50 minutes and interestingly that is exactly what Google says would be a typical journey time.

It's a good route because it runs alongside a wildlife preserve. In the early evening there are always birds and small mammals and lizards running about at the side of the road.

It's also pretty much at my limit in terms of endurance, currently. On the other hand, I've started cycling for exercise serious about 2 or 3 weeks ago and the difference between now and then is quite noticeable. So I'm sure if I can keep this daily schedule up, I'll get even better.

"... in the early evening there are always birds and small mammals and lizards running about at the side of the road"  - isn't Lisa feeding you enough? ;)

Glad you're getting some two wheeled exercise and yes, your stamina will  improve quite nicely.  The great thing is it all happens... automatically! Bodies are wonderful things (at times)!  More later...tc.
