    Sick Day=Awesome ride

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I took a sick day from work yesterday to enjoy the awesome weather we had. 78* and partly to mostly sunny. I took a ride on the Macomb Orchard Trail. Heading North into farm country and apple orchards

    I rode a total of 43 miles round trip.

    here are some good fall pics of the trail...

    I love this bridge--it is the only hill I encountered (a freeway overpass) but, that is SE Michigan for you--flat!!!

    I am super envious -- both of your autumn leaves and your lovely ride. Looks like a great day to be "sick"!

    Totally jealous of all those changed leaves and your ride. How beautiful. All sick days should be like that day.
