2020 was without doubt a stressful year. Whether it was wildfires, a devastating pandemic, killer hornets or political turmoil, the year unsurprisingly heightened people's stress levels. However, as the Nap Ministry writes, "I have claimed the Year of 2020 as 'The Year of Grief. The Year of Rest.'"
Rest plays an incredibly important part in our health and wellbeing and is also the main theme behind this Ride Story which begins at the Joyful Journey Hot Springs Spa.

"Over the course of the day, the ride rolled over the undulating hills, past a multitude of lakes and farmhouses, and slushed through the fallen amber, gold, and red leaves. This is honestly one of my most loved gravel rides. 10/10 would recommend to anyone who is looking for a fun and gorgeous day out on the bike."

"Take a ride under the big Texas sky on gravel and county roads using Schwertner as your base. There is hardly any traffic and endless expansive scenery. Leave the skinny tires at home for this one!"

This year the semi-annual Mandate trip stuck a little close to home. In 2016 we went to Whistler. In 2018 we were in Sedona. And 2020, being what it is, we headed to Hayward. I'll be honest, I'd heard the riding was good but after Whistler and Sedona I wasn't expecting much. I was wrong.

Smooth bike paths, frequent geese crossings, blooming wild flowers, a quick dip into the lake, and a stop for some iced coffee. What more could you ask for on a gorgeous summer bike ride?
