Extra protein for the ride
Today I spent a couple of hours riding the rail trails near my house. The weather was the warmest so far this year but a little windy. Things are starting to come alive in the woods, fields and marshes the trails pass through. You can also tell it's spring because the bugs are back. Every so often I would pass through a swarm of them and get some in my mouth. You couldn't see them until you rode into them and felt them hitting you. I saw a couple of snakes on the trail which is not unusual, and I ended up running across the tail of one because I didn't see it until too late. It appeared to be OK though. The joys of riding in the country.
