wetlands natural park today. Today we did! Dave put the route into Gmaps when we got back and our two-and-a-half hours encompassed a mahoosive eighteen miles so we're both very proud of ourselves. This is the route we took:

Perhaps attempting eighteen miles only a week after buying my bike was a bit too ambitious, but it was fun!

Now to think of a proper name for Bike ...
