Riding my ride

Up early, 6:00 a.m. Checking the local weather radar, didn't look good, a lot of thunderstorms. Riding in the rain is ok, thunderstorms and high winds make riding sometimes hard to manage.

Well lo and behold thunderstorms disappeared by 9:00 a.m.

Bike was packed and ready, out the door we went. Legs felt a little "sticky" I told them we are going to do this, so get over it and lets work. Ride was great, back was "ok" rode a metric century in the gravel. Chilly out, wore a jacket for half the ride.
This past week a seasoned rider turned around out here on the trail dumped his bike on a soft shoulder, hit his hip, and broke it in three pieces, it will be months before he walks. Heal fast bro.

Tomorrow, I want to ride out to "Field of Dreams" haven't rode out there since last year. That would be 62 miles of gravel and 10 miles of pavement. I'm not sure it is still open, I shall find out.

Checking out some Buffalo here, there is a mix of Buffalo, beefalo, and cattle. There is a white buffalo in this group, I couldn't get a good picture, he was behind some trees from my vantage point. I will catch him again.

A happy ending to a good day on the bike, pig, beer, and tatoes.

Now, to the cruel person that has been terrorizing me, and putting bat stickers on my property taking advantage of my bat phobia. You know who you are, and I know who you are. My people will be dealing with you very soon.

Well glad you visited,

Alert Ted Nugent to the white buffalo! I want his autograph! Somewhere around Boone is a white deer. You're an amazing rider. Wish I did a fourth of the miles you do. Keep it up!
