I had an appointment this morning four towns down from our little town, so I thought why not ride the bike there. It ended up to be a 64 mile round trip. I made it 12 miles in before the first layer come off and shortly there after I was down to just shorts and jersey. We had a very strong ENE wind which meant the last 25 miles were hard miles. I still think riding against a hard wind should qualify for extra credit.
I saw these Sandhill Cranes near Trego WI. They seem to be more of these showing up every year. They are a huge bird when fully grown.
I wanted to vary the route back a little since it was an out and back ride...obviously I did know this road well. I thought it was Blacktop, and it turns out it is for about 100 yards, then gravel. The 700 x 23 tires were not ideally the best for this. We made it through, although I did need to un-clip a couple of times.
More loose gravel...only about a 1/4 mile here, but I needed to ride this both ways. Bike will need a good cleaning after today, as this portion was little wet.
I noticed blogger had some issues last week. I lost a post and then the comments that were associated with it disappeared and never did come back. Pictures have been a pain to load as of late also. Maybe I'm just loosing patience with the whole thing. Thanks for reading and participating in the comment section.
