They say it is good to take rest days and have days where you ride nice and slow. I had a few reminders of that the past week.
The other Saturday morning riding with Bike Mart a group of us had to work our way around a turtle in the road (and I was feeling slow like hime at that point). And the other morning on the ride in to work I came across a turtle crossing the bike path. It reminded me that sometimes I have to slow down to and have a slow riding day and enjoy the scenery.
