Look at that Gorgeous view! I took these pictures at the Gouveia Vineyards. I have the pleasure of either running or biking just 3 miles from my house to this beautiful area. I took a bike ride up to the vineyard last evening and took these pictures. I can’t wait until the vines start growing more and I will do it again and get pictures of the lush grapes growing and the green leaves on the trees.
I have been enjoying taking my bike out for little rides during the week. I need to step it up and do some longer rides and build up my mileage. Biking for me is a great complement to my running. I felt different muscles working while I was riding the hills and I need that to help strengthen my legs to avoid injuries.
It is also important if I wish to participate in a biking/running event at some point this year. I am still researching into a run/bike/run race or a sprint triathlon that I can register for this year in my state. I’d have to use my mountain bike for it because I don’t have a street bike. I’d love to get a street bike but that will be an expensive purchase right now that I don’t want to invest in.
Do you know if any sprint tris or duathlons in the state that are good for beginners?
