Heritage Park

Secretly I've always wanted to be one of those super-athletic couples that do outdoor activities together non-stop, own hard-core biking spandex, and have camelbak backpacks for rehydrating. I just love being outside and would love to constantly be biking, walking, running, hiking, kayaking, swimming, whatever outside with Jordan. We've been able to do some things like this lately, but the weather and our schedules haven't allowed us too much until recently. Yesterday we went to Heritage park (how I didn't know about this park until this week is beyond me) and rode our bikes for an hour. It was really nice and a great workout since it was so dang hilly! We had a great time together and I'm hoping we can go again tomorrow before we head back to Mechanicsville on Saturday. We are debating whether or not we should bring our bikes to Mechanicsville since there are definitely good places to ride there, but I think we're just a little worried about space in the cars. We'll see. Maybe we'll buy a bike rack once we're there to get them home (since we'll be dropping off the jeep to be sold). I really would love to go riding our bikes at Belle Isle! I always see people doing outdoor sports there, I just never really have - only swimming and rock-hopping :). I'm looking forward to having some time in Richmond to just do some of the things I used to love doing in high school. Here are a couple pictures of the beautiful heritage park:

  1. We (by we I mean my husband, me, and our dog) LOVE Heritage Park. It's a real fave and we're there at least once a week. I also recommend Falls Ridge Nature Preserve off of Ellett Road for a hike (not sure about biking). Perhaps we'll see you out there! :)
