Fun with a First Time Passenger

Leela on the BikeOne More from Her Bucket List

A friend of mine said that she had never ridden on a motorcycle before and that the experience was something that was on her bucket list. She really wanted to go, and I was flattered when she asked if I would take her as she trusted me to not be the sort to hot rod or pull stupid stunts while riding.

Of course I said sure!

The Route

I didn’t think through the route too much. I wanted to give her that experience that most of us have had while on the bike – just going where the wind takes you. Now that I’ve gone back and plotted out the route we took, I’ve found that there were a lot of significant inefficiencies in the path we took.

I’m completely okay with that.

Getting Off the Bike

We had a time limit thanks to previous commitments, but towards the end of the ride, we stumbled on Mt. Cuba and decided it was time to stretch our legs.

Unfortunately, we got there about 15 minutes before they were closing up for the day, but I’m here to tell you – it was a gorgeous 15 minutes. I’d also like to say that the staff that we encountered were really delightful, helpful, and informative.

If you ride in the Northern Delaware  area, I highly recommend a visit. The roads surrounding Mt. Cuba are great for riding (low lying, lush green in all directions, and plenty of twists and turns) and you couldn’t ask for a better place to stop, get off the bike, and out into the land.
