22.98 Miles (Biked) in 2:21:52
Mood: Enjoying Rudolph the Red Nosed Brontosaurus.
Soundtrack: Twenty One Pilots "Trench"
I decided to head northeast on this lovely Sunday morning. It was a little chilly for the first half hour or so, but it quickly warmed up and was much more pleasant than the past couple of rides. My goal was to make it to Bible Park in Denver, and so I headed in that direction, and may have actually gone a bit too far east, but had I not ridden all the way to Yosemite, I would not have seen this glorious Sinclair dinosaur decked out as Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, and that would have been a true travesty.
I did discover that there is a section of Hamden Avenue that is completely inaccessible by bike unless you are willing to ride in the street in one of the two lanes where cars routinely fly by at fifty miles an hour plus. I am not comfortable pretending I'm a car on busy streets, so I had to turn down this dirt road which led me through a neighborhood of complete and semi-complete multi-million dollar homes. I wasn't sure exactly where I was, so I just kept aiming south, and eventually found a street I was familiar with. It's odd to be in a place you know very well, and then immediately be lost in a land you've never before seen in a matter of seconds.
