Toas Biking Adventure

So sorry I've been so long on posting an update. I can't believe it has been this long since I've posted on my blog.

Last weekend we traveled to Taos New Mexico for a quick weekend of fun. Holly got us into biking, and believe me I haven't ridden in around 15 years!! I'm not exaggerating:) lol
Holly bought a Mountain Bike and had this under her skin to go on her own to Taos, but then she got an idea for us all to go with her. Mike got a new bike from Walmart...nothing expensive at all. I used my cruiser that I have had for oh...15 years. lol Then we got Wendy a trailing bike to go back of Mikes, and I was to carry Evan in a kid seat between me and my handlebars. It was rough on me trying to just ride on my own at first let alone putting an extra person in front of me on my bike. I started off like Wendy learning without training wheels. I didn't think I would ever get myself use to my bike again.
After training myself for two days we were off for Taos. Oh my gosh....what was I in for!? Luckily we found a simple trail....well sort of. Lots of huge rocks in various places on the trail. Remember I didn't have a Mountain Bike! Cruiser with no speeds!!! I think all considering I did very well. We ended up riding along the Rio Grand Gorge for 8 miles. Once back we cooled off some and had our picnic. As much as I dreaded it I had tons of fun.

Here are several shots of our trip.
