It’s Nice To Not Always Ride For Utility

DART ride

I’ve been spending most of my time riding for utility, with the purpose of commuting or to reaching a destination. As much fun as I have doing that, sometimes it’s just nice to just go for a fun ride – with no goals or destinations. I did that last weekend.

I took the DART train into Dallas and meet my friend Jason from the Wild Ride. He took me on one of his regular weekend routes, which was a nice loop from his house, into downtown Dallas, down the Santa Fe Trail, around White Rock Lake, and then back to his house. Overall, the route was just shy of 30 miles – but it didn’t feel like it.

It was nice to get out of my town and experience another city. Although I’ve ridden around Dallas before, it’s been a while, and not on this course. There are always some amazing things to discover when exploring a new and different route. I’ll try to keep changing it up every once in a while.
