Environment, Hanging out

Bike the Dike

florida / January 12, 2015

We drove to Lake Okeechobee’s John Stretch Park near Clewiston, and rode our bikes 10 miles. Why only 10? The headwind was 15 miles an hour, and it was only 57 degrees. It was much colder riding into that wind.  The birds would just put out their wings and hang in the air because the wind was strong enough to hold them up.
