Today marks the first day I did not have report for work, and don't think that was an easy decision, so on this first day I thought I would do a little biking...surprised? Bicycling for me is a good activity to think things out and clear the mind.

Some cows out enjoying the the grass that is greening up nicely in our area now.
I decided to venture off on some of the Dairyland township roads. When I left the blacktop road they didn't look bad but they soon turned soft.
To say the roads had some soft spots would be an understatement. I don't know if you can see the people standing on the road in the background, but I am quite sure they were questioning my intelligence. When I passed by their cabin they were standing in the yard. I stopped to snap this photo and I noticed they were standing on the road. I am only guessing they wanted to watch me ride through the mud.
I didn't have to walk any of the roads, but it was close. I am glad I have this ride geared low now or I would've been walking for sure.
This picture was actually before the mud run. I ended up with 43 miles. The temps were around the +70F mark with a stout SSE wind.
Get outdoors and have some fun ! ! !
