One More Bike Ride on Our Last Full Day

IMG_3060In the past three years, we have gone biking only a couple times. So to go three times in as many days was a feat, but we managed it! If we had more time here, we might have had a day of rest in between, but being our last day there was no time to waste.


IMG_3068This time we drove to AuSable, and biked along the AuSable River through Jay into Upper Jay.

It’s another nice ride, with only a few hills to go up. We used an app we downloaded called AllSport to keep track of our stats.


In Upper Jay, when I was growing up, there used to be a little theme park called “Land of Make Believe”. It’s been closed for many years. That’s what this sign is referring to.




There were so many beautiful views – if I had taken pictures every time I saw a great view, we would have been stopping to take pictures every mile or so.



On our way home, we stopped at a local deli and bought sandwiches for lunch. We found a nice shady spot at a park in Jay and enjoyed a great lunch.

We did 22 miles in all, and had another great ride.


After dropping Mom off at home, we headed back to the campground to get cleaned up, and then enjoyed IMG_3084a second fun event on our last day – dinner with Judy and Ed. Yesterday was Ed’s big day as he is now retired!! And they will be heading out in their motorhome in just a few weeks. We had a great dinner trading places on our bucket list and sharing stories. Thanks again for dinner – we had a great time!!


And unfortunately, our time here has come to an end. This morning we will be packing up and heading out for Albany. Trip #4 is now in the books.


  1. This trip may be over but the memories will gone one and on so you can just pull them out and relive them. 22 miles is a long ride and you're still able to walk. I think that's fantastic. lol

  2. safe travels as you head towards home!!!..great memories you made!

  3. Great job on the bikes! It is sad to end such an enjoyable trip, but soon, your trip will go on and on and on. Two weeks and two days till house goes on the market.

  4. The least enjoyable day of camping is the last day! When you hit the road full-time hopefully, the last day of a camping trip will be a thing of the past. Then you can do all those healthy activities daily.
