I had such a blast riding my first Century last weekend in beautiful Door County WI, that I set about researching rides for early Spring 2015.
Then guess what. I discovered the riding season hasn't ended here in WI yet.
Yup, I found another Century ride in Sheboygan for this coming weekend, and it even has a 112 Mile "Iron Raccoon" option
I mentioned this in a tentative sort of way to my wife, and of course she saw right through my passive demeanor and said 'you're going to do it aren't you'.
Then there was a brief discussion about medical insurance, attorney's fees, dementia and other subtly worded inferences which left me in no doubt that she thinks I'm losing it
What I haven't told her yet is that I'm thinking of driving down on Friday afternoon and camping overnight. I gotta build her up a bit before I spring that one on her. I haven't camped in 10 years. Oddly enough I was poking around our storage locker only a week ago, looking for some old bike parts, when I happened upon our old 2-man tent. I remember thinking at the time that it would be fun to camp again, then figured my wife would probably divorce me if I so much as mentioned the idea..
Ahh well. Upwards and onwards. Here's the link if anyone is interested Maywood Earth Ride - Route Information
It sounds like another beautiful ride through a part of the State which I'm unfamiliar with, unlike last weekend's route which I knew pretty well.
It would be great to hear from anyone who may have ridden this event in the past.
Oh, and the weather is looking like warm, humid, rainy with a chance of thunderstorms, so another little challenge ahead
