honey run

We rode our bikes up to Lyons, CO (32 miles round trip) and refilled some empty containers with 20 lbs. of affordable, local honey from Madhava. We also stopped at Oskar Blues for beer ice cream. Mmm... It was a good ride but a really windy day as you can see from the photo.

We'll be making similar posts in the upcoming weeks. Why? Because we plan on doing several bike trips to surrounding towns this summer. The long term motivation is to increase our fitness and endurance so that we can eventually do longer trips across Colorado, around Lake Michigan, maybe even across the U.S. The more immediate motivation is to get out and enjoy surrounding microbreweries, campgrounds, etc. without any need for a car.


  1. That looks like so much fun! Plus tasty! Mmmmmm.

  2. Tasty and fun indeed! Hey, if you want to cruise through Boulder on your migratory journey, you're certainly welcome to park your gypsy wagon by us.

  3. I'm gonna park my gypsy butt (sans wagon) by you starting Friday circa 10pm... woott!!
