First recorded Ride with GPS and first ride on my own

Hey there recreational gravel riders! I’m kind of excited because I went out tonight, even though it was 10° and chance of rain …… and I did get a little wet…. but I finished a ride by myself, and I recorded my first ride. So I wanted to share that with you guys and girls.

It wasn’t fast, but it was fun. I didn’t really know where I was going, and I was making it up as I went.

Near the end, I ended up down in Kiwanis and realized I had to go back up the hill to get out of the subdivision. Lol
I also rode on some sidewalks, which I wouldn’t do if I was leading a group…… and I got lost in Breithaupt so I did a detour on some beautiful green grass between two houses. Which I would not do if leading a group. :joy:

Not sure if this link will show my route.


That’s fantastic Patti! Looks like an interesting loop around the city - those are always the most fun, when you’re not really sure where you’re going. I was out riding about the same time yesterday and I also went to Kiwanis park. Sometime when you’re feeling (even more) adventurous, there is a nice trail along the river, that starts at Kiwanis park and ends at the roundabout in Bridgeport (Bridge & Lancaster) (It’s the blue trail on your map). The surface isn’t paved, but it’s hard packed. Also out that way is the RIM park trail which is fully paved.

Ok, thanks. I’m definitely up to trying new routes.

I can handle most terrain but at my speed. Lol.
