Four days of long rides, my bike said she was tired and laid down. I said I am too, but we have to finish our destination. So we saddled up, rode on and finished.
Dirt Century #51 for 2009. Was cold and windy. Had to work hard when the wind was pushing against me. Fortunately the wind was angled against my back on the way home. I needed some push. Found a pop machine in the town of Dyersville and purchased 40 ounces of vitimin mineral water and 20 ounces of diet coke. Drank half of right there and headed back home.
