    9-15 = Yes.

    Saturday Village Peddler ride. Met up with a few BF-ers. Freeking cold. I forgot something very important. Wasn't happy about it. Every dog we saw gave me the heebies.

    Slower than last week, but the weather had to have something to do with it.

    Computer has been reading low, but I have about 26 miles for the ride.

    9/15 Easy ride on the Glacial Drumlin trail. First ride of the week so legs weren't the greatest but it felt good to ride anyway. ~ 15 miles in about an hour. Took the camera which is what I usually do on easy rides. Enjoy.

    EZ 20 miler this morning. Left from EB Shurts in Waukesha and rode south along the Fox River. Did one lap around the old Salesville Superweek course then back to town on 59. Cool 53 deg warming to 67 by 11am. Nice ride. (pics : sorry, no chix this time)







    The 'meat' of the race course. I used to hammer up this climb ... must
    be the extra weight of the camera slowing me down.




    Right turn on Holiday.



    Then DOWN!



    Most memorable moment on this road was riding downhill on Holiday, halfway back in the USCF 3's/4's right on the left edge of the road. Right off the gravel. I wanted to sneak a peek to see how far I was back from the front and as soon as I moved my head to the left, a mail box went by my nose at 35 mph.

    MOMMA !!!

    It was a nice ride today though.

    We did that too!
    Fri evening our 9YO & I took a tandem up & tented out on site. Our other two & tandem2 arrived Sat AM, and we rode the short loop, then home.

    Nice day for it, and the kids loved the sags.

    103 miles at the Hope Ride, sans questionable lunch and long lines at most SAG stations. Good ride, will probably do it again next year (but bring my own sandwich).

    Waaaa? Dang, I would have liked to meet you velomedieval. I thought about doing the century but I had things to do at home. I could have been easily diverted into doing the longer ride.

    So what is up with the pork chop sandwich? Kinda like the fried chicken lunch at the hilly hundred.

    9/23 yes - 43 hilly miles up and around Franklin, Wabeek, West Bloomfield.

    45 minutes into the ride I reached down to grab my front water bottle along Franklin. It wasn't there..."****, must have lost it somehow on a bump." Reached for the back bottle - nothing there. I did a double take then realized I'd left them both sitting back on the kitchen counter.

    So I detoured into Wabeek Country Club and found the "Snack Shoppe" down two flights of concrete stairs (fun in the shoes.) I go to buy a water and the girl working asks for my member ID as I hand her some cash. She politely tells me that I have to be a member to purchase anything. As I'm thinking about what to respond some guy behind me asks "What do you want?" and I explain the deal to him. He puts my bottle of water on his tab. Thanks much member #989.

    Next year: BF meetup? I almost made a thread about Hope and then it slipped my mind altogether.

    The pork was a poor choice, I think (curious to see what my Jewish friend thought), and the number of flies on the food was really gross-- thank goodness there was a gas station across the street. The Hoosier Hills Bike Tour (which was, unfortunately, also yesterday) has a great box lunch with your choice of (wrapped) turkey, ham, or veg and cheese sandwiches, excellent pasta salad, chips, apples, and cookies and excellent SAG in between. And no flies on the food. I think it's my favorite organized ride.

    I don't do the Hilly lunches, either, but then I live in Bloomington and I don't really need more than a pack of cheesy peanut butter crackers to get me through one of those rides-- it's home turf. Psimet, you have a stronger stomach than I!

    9/23 - yes , 45 miles at Blood, Sweat & Tears ride in Barrington.
    Nice rolling hills, low-traffic roads , great weather. So , I liked the ride despite the fact that you have to do the same loop twice for 45 mile distance.

    54 miles today, at an avg about 17... OMG, I was so tired towards the end. We never really got a good tail wind because we went more south than we did east... there was a good crosswind wind today which didn't help us much, ugggh.

    ... but a good ride indeed!!

    9/23 - Autumn Trek in River Falls, WI. Nice and cool at the start meeting with group from the Wed. night group ride. The consensus is the 65 mile route with one planning the 101 mile. Forecast calls for strong winds from the south and increasing as the day goes. We haed out looking like a force to be reckoned with until about 8 miles in when the call comes up from the back half, "flat." Six of us stop to give Hans the "advice and support" he needs. Takes a while but are soon under way. At the second rest stop got a cool picture of Kathy. Next stop is at the Circle K Orchard where their big festiva weekend is going on. This is about 35 miles into the ride and most has been into a stiff wind, so well needed. Civil War Camp set up there also. The one rider did the 101 miles, most every one else took the 51 mile bail out, and four of us did the 65 route. It was a brutal ride with the wind added to the hilly terrain we have here. My thrill came when I hit 49 mph on the big downhill by Ellsworth. Wore out at the end, but made it to the tee time I had with my wife. A great day!

    9/21 - Commute (47 miles Round Trip) - total bliss.

    9/22 - Saturday morning ride out of Village Peddler. Good ride. Nice pace. About 26 miles.
