We headed to the Makuri Islands this evening and rode the Country to Coastal route.

With today’s unseasonably warm weather, I was not surprised that there were only two of us on the ride. Despite riding 54 miles outside this afternoon, Chris still joined me virtually tonight. He thought he would only join for a few minutes, but he rode the entire hour.

Our conversation covered his outdoor adventure. Chris learned that I am not the best with street names and that I rely heavily on my GPS for navigation. We also talked about the history of the bike paths and former rail lines in the area.

Chris completed the Country to Coastal route achievement, which doubled his XP points for the route. I completed level 55, which earned my avatar the Animal Print Kits.

In our 60 minute ride, we covered approximately 21 miles with 950 feet of climbing.
