We did a long bike ride today -  19 miles - from our lot all the way to Oriental and return.  The map from my Garmin watch looks like it's just a single path, but it's actually a double line since we re-traced our path to return.  Note the 1373 calories!   (the time is not accurate since we stopped several times for brief visits)

One of the stops was a rest break over near  The Bean (coffee shop).  Got me a large coffee and enjoyed it just relaxing near the Oriental Harbor Marina. 

And another stop was at Piggly Wiggly on the way back out of town - we were running low on chocolate at the camper......I chose a nice deli container of chocolate covered peanuts.  I tied the bag to my handlebars - and proceeded to bike for about 7 miles.  In the sun.  It was 86 degrees.  Probably not a good idea.

Here's what chocolate covered peanuts look like after being in the sun for 45 minutes.  I do testify that it is possible to cut a chunk off.   And it tastes just terrific!

That looks like a fun ride...good thing it's hard to ruin chocolate...

And you could probably eat the whole blob for the calories you burned. Haha MOM
