Our First Bicycle Ride in Duncan Park

 As many of my readers remember, I got me and Daisy bikes not terribly long ago. However we didn't get a chance to take them for a spin until last Friday. I chose a local place called Duncan Park as I'm familiar with the area as I spent many years playing baseball there.
 Daisy wasn't too confident with her skills as it's been years since she had a bike that works. So she had to get used to it again by taking a slow ride around the place. 
Once we got the actual nature trail, we saw a glimpse of the huge baseball stadium that used to host a minor league team. It's now the home stadium of a local high school, but I once played baseball there too. Brought back many memories. 
 It didn't take terribly long to see the nature of the trail. It's nothing special in colder months, but it was beautiful in spring time. 
 I made sure Daisy was in front, as if she happened to fall I'd be able to help her in an instant. 
 At the end of the trail you get to see the small lake. The water was rather murky looking, but I suppose the ducks didn't care. I could hear them quacking in the distance. 
 We rode the trail twice, which I figure was probably about a mile. 
The park also has smaller trails made just for bicycles, though they were rather small and we decided to turn back and just go on the main path. 
Even though we were only out for roughly an hour, we were worn out by the time we got to the car. It may be some time before we return, as I plan to visit the local park near Daisy's house next.

It's good to start slow. I always find the worst part about breaking in bike riding is my butt! Ooh that hurts! *wink* Looks like a nice park! Glad you guys enjoyed the day!
