It was a full and fun weekend.
Saturday was Harper's 4th Birthday! We had plans later in the day so I was up early and on the bike before 5 am. It was pretty chilly at the start, 36 degrees, and the wind was already pretty strong out of the E/NE. The Evergreen got the call once again. I pretty much road pavement straight East for 1.5 hours. From there on it was a lot of new gravel roads to explore. I kept going East and North till I hit hwy 169. I took that North to the next road crossing and began my journey home. A few gravel roads forced me further North. The gravel road in Milacs County are some of my favorite. They don't seem to be on much of a grid pattern, they are usually narrow, and wind through a lot of swamp lands. The tailwinds heading home were amazing! Much easier traveling.
I made it home with 7 hours and 120 miles. I felt really good. Because of the cold I only drank 3 bottles. I know I should have consumed more but I didn't feel like stopping. I spent much of the weekend catching up on hydration.
That afternoon we hit up the Skatin Place to get our roller skating on! It's not something I think I'd enjoy but it's always a good time.
I did start to fade pretty hard around 9:00!
Sunday was a lazy start but by 10 I was out riding with Jimmy. We haven't ridden together since he's moved back for the summer. 2.5 hours flew by! I mowed the back yard, reluctantly, grocery shopped, folded laundry, and poof the day (weekend) was done.
Another good one.
