I usually try to ride on my birthday, but the weather hasn't cooperated today.
This wasn't unexpected, and Mary Jo and I had our plans accordingly. Instead of riding in the cold and snow, we went out yesterday when it was considerably warmer.
I rode Thunder, partly because I really like him...
but mostly because he is brave and surefooted and the conditions made that a priority.
Once we got past the mucky parts, the ride was really gorgeous.
I took a few pictures of Mary Jo and Scarlett.Then I handed her my camera and asked her to take a few of me. I really like this one.
She also took a couple with her phone.
This is my favorite because it shows me doing two of my absolute favorite things - riding and taking photos.
I'm still looking forward to the first ride of my fifties, but this was a great way to wrap up the decade of riding that was my forties.
