..but I am sorta training for cyclocross. I'm trying to get in shape, I'm serious, stop looking at the river canyon. No time to stop and admire the view. No time for picture taking (oh that's right I don't have a phone or camera with me anyway). Stay focused. Pedal hard. Maybe this year you'll have some energy left after the first 'cross lap.
I'm lucky to be able to combine training rides with commuting home rides, because I have to force myself to train. Training can take all the fun out of biking.
So I've been doing some variations of the 7-Mile loop on my way home from work. With a 30-pound U-lock in my backpack, I'm hoping to build some muscle and endurance. I'd gone out a few times on Gov't Way to the Military Cemetery to hook up with the Centennial Trail and ride to 7 Mile, then back on Aubrey White and Downriver Drive. I reversed it last week, and that's when I looked up from Aubrey White Pkwy and noticed the nice views to my left along the river.
I should probably extend the ride a bit out to 9-Mile. Spokane has some nice rides.
