Funny how a 4 day holiday weekend can feel like a couple weeks but yet fly by. Mine was crammed full of stuff. Here we go.
As previously noted I was up early and on the bike heading north to the in-laws cabin by 5:30 am. I took a few detours to tack on some more time.
86 miles once completed. A quick shower and I was in the car to watch the kids in the Hillman parade. After that it was all lake all day.
Hung out at the cabin not doing much of anything. A bit before two I made my way home into a vicious headwind. I zigged and zagged to try to avoid it but I had to face the music sometime and that was brutal. In Genola I jumped on the ATV trail, Soo Line, and made my way to Hwy 10 where it turns back into tar. From there I took the trail to Avon and meandered my way home.
100 steamy, windy miles. I was shot.
Up early once again and on the bike by 5:45. Casual ride of 51 miles in before work. I could feel the legs. It was good to be back at work but that was a long 8 hour shift!
Again up early but not to ride. I was an on hand mechanic for the Tour of Saints. I was out in St. Joe set up by 5:45. The experiences one encounters on these tour rides is a whole additional post! Around 8:50 I packed up and headed out to another location, for the last stop of the 50 mile route. Just sitting in the shade I was sweating. Once wrenching I was dripping all over the bikes! But there was no wind! Man I wanted to be riding. I didn't get home close to 2. I was shot and the rain solidified I wasn't going to ride.
Got 9 hours of sleep last night!
Great several days. On to next week.
