I’ve been craving a good Latte for the past week. There’s no place that makes THE perfect cup like The Shed in Belfountain (in my opinion!). 🙂 There are other reasons why I MUST bike today:
- I need to get out of my ‘sluggish‘ mood that I had last week (I didn’t even go spinning!) 😯
- I’ve been rather horrible with my diet last week
- I need to get over my panic attack from last Sat’s Blue Mountain ride – hmmm, actually I was over it by last Tues 😎
Yep, it’s time to revisit Belfountain – I was there almost 2 months ago! 😀 I finally learned my lesson to waterproof electronics from last Sat’s thunderstorm ride (took me a while!). I was out the door by 9AM after a carbo-breakfast, ziploc-ing my cell phone 😎 , & slathering some sunscreen (Meredith, I was using your L’oreal samples! 🙂 Will give you reviews soon!)
A sunny day calls for lots of cyclist on the road. The LapDogs cycling club caught up to me. They were so fast….at least a pace of 35km/hr. I had the pleasure of riding with them for an unforgettable 15sec before I trailed way behind!
After biking the mountains at Blue Mountains, the hills today were…..a piece of cake. Mind you, I was taking it easy today with speed (saving energy for another ride tomorrow). But
I was my legs were definitely not complaining much.
What a good day to practice biking with my butt off the saddle (my next goal) :D. I’ve been practicing all last week with my commuter bike while commuting to work. I was a bit wobbly today; nonetheless, I pedaled up several hills without sitting. I need to work on riding up in a straight line! 😮
I took a different route today than last time – distance increased but I avoided the stretch of road that was restricted to one lane due to construction. I was so thrilled when I finally arrived. 😀 A cycling club was already there. The Shed is quite a famous rest stop for bikers…..both cyclists & motorcyclists.
I ordered a regular skim Latte. Note to self: they only accept cash. Thank goodness I brought $5 cash! The latte didn’t come in a bowl like last time & the Latte art wasn’t as impressive. But the taste was just as yummy! A Latte & a Larabar…..my favourite drink & snack! Just absolute bliss. 😀
The Shed sells a “peanut butter trail mix bar” which I MUST try next time…..maybe next weekend? 😀 I was so relaxed on their lounge chairs under the sun with my snacks. I took a short nap….so reluctant to leave 😦 .
Alas, I must head back. The total distance was 79km….further than last time but took less time! 😀
I’m excited for another bike ride tomorrow…..with Luch!! Remember him??? 😀
