A Ride to remember
This morning at 6:30 a.m. I got a chance to do an amazing "mountain bike" ride just outside Succotz. There is a RUGGED road going out from near the school into the jungle, and in the past I have gone out running on it in the morning. This year I brought my folding bike, and I was itching to try it out on this hilly road into the mountains. And boy did I get a workout, it was the most difficult 7 mile ride of my life, but also one of the prettiest! Praise God for such a beautiful country, and for bringing me back in one piece (it was touch an go more than once on some crazy descents). The road was covered with huge rocks, gullies, and many muddy areas. and there was over 1000 feet of climbing in 7 miles, VERY STEEP climbing.
