Bike Riding in the Rain



Last Monday we had a day off. We were feeling like we needed to get out and do something outside. We decided to rent bikes and ride the coastal trail. The coastal trail goes from downtown Anchorage to the Anchorage Airport, 12 miles away. It was a blast. We probably only did about 10 miles of the trail, and then we turned around to check out the Chester Creek trail that runs through some of the parks in Anchorage. We saw a moose and two calves that crossed the path about 50 yards in front of us. She stared us down as we quickly came to a stop and yielded to her and her young ones. It was raining the whole time and there were some awesome puddles to splash through. By the time we made it back to the bike shop my clothes were all muddy in the back and our butts were sore! I still can't sit on a wooden chair without grimacing. The rest of the week we just caught up on some much needed sleep. Next week we have our last 4 days off of the season probably as a lot of the college aged tour directors will be returning to school. We're looking forward to getting more hours and making lots of moolah. So since it's our last 4 days off, we're going to Valdez to go camping. Look for some awesome waterfall pictures next thursday!
