Despite the Threat of Storms...69.3 Miles today!
Had a great ride today...made a 69.3 mile loop up to Monticello. Took it at an easy pace, did it in just under 5 hours. Lots of nice country roads and relaxation. No pics or Turtle Porn, but a great day still.
Here's the route and details of the ride, though...
Met a couple of cyclists out on the ride today, as well as a burgeoning newbie while on a break who was chock full of questions about road cycling. He's planning on attending the West Lafayette Police Auction next week to try to score a road bike. I taught him what he needed to look for and exchanged emails since he's in Lafayette and offered to help him get whatever he finds road ready....chances are actually pretty good for him, as I know what's in the impound and steered him toward an old 80's Bianchi that's in there that's just a tad too small for me.
The other notable meeting was a Monticello Roadie name of Tom. He was doing the same loop as me, but in the opposite direction, so we rode together on my homebound and his outbound leg of the loop. In the process, we decided he might be interested in a tour I have planned for next Summer. The UP Redux, starting from the house and back, though. Looks like a possible "Tom's on Tour"!
