Sand triking

    Been parked in my sister's drive way this past couple of days and yesterday Cindy flew off to KS. to visit her family and attend the Jones family reunion while I stay here in the Pittsburgh area.   It's been hot and humid but supposed to cool down this weekend.  We've ridden some of the Montour trail and yesterday evening Joan (sister) and Steve (nephew) rode some of the Panhandle trail near McDonald PA.  There has been a lot of rain lately with some flooding and parts of the trail were about 3 or 4 inches deep in sand.  This made for some interesting riding on a tadpole style trike, picking a line and pedaling like a mad man,weaving and slicing, keeping up momentum to get through  sandy sections.  Kind of like mountain biking on some of Fl. trails.  Joan had a bit of trouble at first but got the hang of it near the finish of the ride and started to have fun with it.  What a great interval workout.
She'd be doing much better if wearing cleats and clipped in. 
    Gotta take the dogs for a walk, wow spell check allowed "gotta". See ya.
