Glorious riding weekend! Spring IS here!
Today was a day meant for chores, but of course it was beautifully sunny and I could hear the siren song of the road singing to me. I had already heard from my one partner in crime she was off to Jordan River for a nice ride, but I really needed to clean the house. I also decided to let Motorcycle Man take Scarlet for a ride because Monster wasn't ready to go for her first trip of the riding season. He surprised me though and came back with insurance for Monster. Motorcycle Man announced we were going to ride over the Malahat. This is a big deal for me because it is a big highway and the main artery on Vancouver Island. This stretch of road is notorious at times due to centre line incursions resulting in head on accidents. This highway is beautifully scenic on sunny days. KisbyD joined us and this was a weekend of firsts for her, we travelled several roads this weekend and I think we put about 300km's on our bikes. It was glorious riding to the top of the Malahat and taking in the breath taking vista.
Of course as with anything we do when biking, we always stop and have a cup of the demon bean and a snack, and then it was off to home. I love riding with Motorcycle Man, he is a good riding partner and it is just plain fun being out on the road with him.
