Where I travel about 200 miles, which takes my wife and I about 2.5 to 3 hrs to Des Moines so I can do a 25 mile bike ride called MAR For Trails. The ride is tomorrow and like last year nice weather is expected.
Some of you may think and say that driving that distance just to do a 25 mile ride is not worth it. Ok thats cool. But you know what doing this ride is not about the short 25 miles route. Its about meeting and talking to the people on the ride I saw last year and the years before. No none of us are friends, but we do share the common love of cycling. In fact last August I saw a bunch of them on ONABIKE. Which is a ride here in NW Iowa.
Do I like driving the distance? No, I'd rather not. But after getting to D.M. and getting ready for the ride, meeting the people on the ride and completeting it with them makes it all worth while.
Any of you travel any distance over 50 miles for a ride, no matter how long or short it is? Do you find it worth doing so?
