Day 14: Coastal Cruising

From Diana:
We had amazing weather today.  We took advantage of the fact that we only live a 10-15 minute bike ride to the beach, so we went for a long bike ride along the beach.  We even had the chance to stop for a snack break and lay on a big hill.  It was the perfect Saturday.

A few years ago Adonis asked me to get a bike with him so that we could cruise together.... but I immediately said "HELL TO THE NO" lol.  I'm clumsy as is, now this man wants to mount me on two wheels?? Ha!  That attitude quickly changed after I saw how much fun he had during a very rainy 42 mile NYC Bike Tour.  I decided to support him for the next NYC Bike Tour and got myself a bike and intensely trained two weeks before the big ride (lol -- definitely wasn't enough time).  Now, I love biking! Just another way to do something healthy while having fun.  You should try it.

I couldn't help it, so here are more photos of our afternoon:


  1. Great post. Dakar and I were just talking about bikes the other day. I told him I want a beach cruiser. I'm afraid of anything fancy because I don't want my butt to hurt. LOL But I def want a beach cruiser with a basket :-)

  2. nice composition in that first shot!

  3. Rachel -- your butt will hurt not matter which bike you get lol -- BUT they do make padded seats, pants, shorts, and even underwear!!

  4. I love that about you two, the support and the fun things you do together or in fact how you make everything fun whether it is or not lol. Now 42miles is a little much for my bt a nice bike ride to the beach aahhhh now you are talking! Great pics too!
