One of my first cycling goals was met today. I biked to one of the 6 towns that surround us although I have been farther that is 1 down and 5 to go. At the beginning of the day I didn't think that a ride was going to happen today with things to be done around the house. I didn't get up early enough then church and almost had to go to Lowes. Though calling eliminating going. I reaaaly hate that spanish at the begining. We're not Mexico yet though damn close. Now after mowing, trimming bushes and edging the grass cleaning the garage. I got to go ride and couldn't believe it. I took off and and headed south then thought I could make it to (And) in time. So I turned around and turned it up. It was 8pm and and 17 to go on a 10 speed Fuji old and a classic a great ride. Got chased by 2 dogs half way there and made it to (And corner) a great feeling got a picture and back I go. In the dark and along the highway I got back what felt like a fairly good time and no one knew and no worse for wear. That I had gone all that way which they would have said (why!) that was stupid and ohh-my-gosh daaad. I would have had to said just because. There's something about being out there and knowing you got there yourself in the peace and quiet on the road. Oh yeah ther was the Prairie Peddler this weekend it was a good thing the paper dinky little town or the chamber did any promotion for the 2 large rides they had going maybe more people would show up than just 80. I didn't hear or see squat. Hmmmmmmmmmm. Well enjoy the ride then run easy.It was 16 miles.
