Fresh Air in Loveland



You know that feeling you have, when you step outside on a warm day after days of being cooped up inside trying to survive winter?! Yah that feeling! 

We had a rare warm day on Sunday…my 16 day long cold has started to taper off although I still have outrageous coughing fits every now and then and still can’t hear through one ear. Since we both have been eagerly waiting for warmer temps to explore our new stomping grounds we thought a wonderful Valentine’s day gift for each other would be bikes!

Let me tell you why. 

Loveland and Fort Collins are connected by such amazing walking/biking trails.  There are still parts of it that the city needs to finish, but these trails connect Loveland to Fort Collins and offers over 20 miles of paved trails that wind through local parks, along the Big Thompson River, through residential neighborhoods, through Boyd Lake State Park, the Loveland Civic Center and up through parks in Fort Collins. This is exciting for us! The two hobbies I plan on pursuing this spring/summer are biking and paddle boarding. Scott has told me that my mother’s day gift will be a paddle board. I am so stoked! I can not wait to get out on the water and enjoy paddling across one of the many lakes in this region. 


Anyway…since the next day (Monday) we got 8 inches of snow its nice to reflect on Sunday’s weather. Outside of huge 40/50 mph wind gusts, it was a nice 61 degrees, perfect for bike riding. We of course wanted to attach our go pro to our bikes and show you the trails, but we couldn’t get anything to work when we got our bikes out. It was kind of like one mishap after another. We decided that we would still enjoy it anyway, even though this video could have been way better if our equipment was cooperating.  Enjoy!

How’s the weather where you are at? Are you itching for winter to go away so you can get outside?

  1. It’s been a little cold lately here in CLE! I think it’s awesome that you went on an adventure with the family. It’s really nice to have access to hike/bike trails.

  2. I wish we had some nice biking trails in close proximity to our house. We literally have to put our bikes on a rack on our car and drive twenty minutes away to safely ride our bikes as a family because of the heavy traffic on the roads and lack of trails. You are lucky! Enjoy your bike rides! Bike riding really is a great family activity

  3. wow biking is so much fun with family. i love going to the mountains and it’s a great adventure. glad you had a great time together.

  4. The weather has been up and down around here where we live. Getting outside and blowing the stink off of us is something my mother always use to say. Just go outside and enjoy everything this world has to offer.

  5. I love where I live because it never gets too cold to handle. Glad to hear you all had fun and that your cold is wearing off!

  6. I am quite tired of the rain right now. It has rained 4 out of 5 days (thankfully not all day each of those days). I am so over the cold and damp… Can I see sunshine?

  7. Living in Canada we are all longing for the warmer months. We can’t wait for them to arrive, and be able to go biking and have family time outside. We had a warmer day last week and my kids thought Summer was coming!

  8. Weather here is improving, feels like spring now. I haven’t been to ireland, the place u guys visited looks like a nice breezy place
