Another ride/run with mom

Mom's ready to go
As the sky looked somewhat threatening, Mom and I set out for another ride/run this morning. This time we followed a beautiful quiet path along a canal called De Lage Vaart.

It takes less than a kilometre to get onto this path, which we followed for about 5km. Then we turned right for a few hundred metres, and back along a quiet road called the Wisentweg.

There are several farms and a brewery along this road. There's also the Warmonderhof, which offers a four-year study in bio-dynamic farming and gardening.

We had planned our route so that this time we had a tailwind on the way home. 

Aside from a few drops, we were lucky that the rain stayed away.  We could see the dark purple clouds move away from us with the expansive views the polder offers.

We got home shortly after an hour, taking my mom's riding volume to 30km in the two sessions we did in three days.

"Don't make it sound as if I am that sporty," she said when I told her about this post.
