You know, we're on this biking/hiking trip....so we took our folding bikes on the boat with us to Ocracoke. And we rode alot!
8.5 miles to see the wild ponies down Highway 12. I know I'm dorky.
Ponies are not so wild anymore. They're in a pen and are fed hay....but they are in nice shape. You're not allowed close to them now. I remember seeing them 30 years ago when they would stand at (a much rattier) fence and eat apples/carrots out of your hand. They were not well tended then.
And of course, we then rode the 8.5 miles back to the boat.....that was plenty of exercise for a day!!
