Loma Rica loop
Yesterday I rode to Zack's house at around noon and we rode together up to Amanda's house. The scenery in Loma Rica is beautiful, I always enjoy riding up there. The route we took to her house was 30 miles and involved a few pretty intense hills, so we were thoroughly pooped by the time we got there. Fortunately there was a chevy truck full of red-necks buzzing us with the truck every few miles so we had no choice but to stay alert. Amanda rewarded us with fresh baked cookies and then we hit the road for the return trip. The cookies were delicious, but we needed some health food so we stopped at Gold Eagle Market in Loma Rica for fried chicken and jojo fries. We each got a chicken breast and a few jojos, Zack got a flavored water and I had a V-8, for a grand total of $6. I could feel the vitamins and protein surge through my body. After devouring the food in mere seconds we hopped back on the steeds and headed down the hill. Now this ride is awesome for a few reasons. The first couple I've already mentioned (cookies, scenery, cookies, duh), but it's also great because the ride home is mostly downhill. With a stomach full of chicken and jojos, a perfect 70 degree day and a downhill return trip we flew back to Zack's house making the trip in about half the time it took us to get up there. Back at his house we made sure we were in no danger of losing any fat by drinking a couple beers and eating some pot roast and veggies. If there's a better day of cycling to be had, I've never seen it. You have any good rides lately? Know of any good rides in my neck of the woods?
