Off running - xtrain day

20 miles on bike - out to Grandview Lake - what a nice ride - 7 miles to the lake, 6 miles around, 7 miles back

Learned a lot about the gears on my bike :)  For example - it has another gear that gets me going about 5 mph faster :)  I also suck at changing the gears at the correct time on hills...

Oh well - I plan on riding a lot more.
