Sunday Morning Ride

It’s really been hot the past few days and I had decided not to ride my bike. Today it’s a bit cooler in the mornings, which I prefer to ride, so off I go.

This is my first pit stop along the way.

This is Town Center of Virginia Beach. It’s a nice area with places to eat, areas to sit outside and enjoy the view or your company. It can get pretty busy here.

Here I arrive at my destination…Mount Trashmore. For those who don’t know, it is a landfill converted into a park…a rather nice one at that.

This is the Mount Trashmore emblem located at the top of the hill. You can find kite flyers here during windy times. Lots of people use the hill for working out. The guy on the left for example is walking backward down the hill. Some jog all the way around the top instead of using the path.

I’m not sure if they are together, but backward they go.

Of course we can’t forget the children who want to enjoy the play area before the sweltering heat sets in.

Here I have my stuff set up after the ride around the park after arriving, preparing for this post. It is a really nice breeze blowing to help squash the heat. I’m gonna be heading back after I post this. It’s about fifteen miles round trip. This is my second trek here since I got the bike.

Time to head back….

  1. That's a nice long ride. Looks like the weather was perfect for it. I wish we could ride like that with the kids. I know they would love it.

  2. Yes Darcel, it is a nice ride and the weather was nice due to the breeze. I'm sure one day you will find the five of you taking family rides together.
