This was sweet. We stopped here both ways. and yet, we forgot to take pictures both times. In both cases, it was at the end of a long day. The first time it was very windy. The second time it was threatening rain. But I rode anyway and both rides were very fun. The thick woods made the winds and rain non-events. I found this in trails.com and we picked our hotel to be nearby so it was very convenient. It's only 3.8 miles long, but fun single-track. It's the kind of trail that will turn a beginner into an addict. It was a good trail to start out on for my first mountain bike ride of the year, and because I'm still recovering from my broken elbow in January. I don't have my full strength back, but my bone is all healed. On the second ride, I gave a guy my spare inner tube. He really wanted to ride and didn't have time to go to the store. I totally understand. He gave me a seat bag in return, even though I didn't really want it. He said it was a hot brand. He's a sales rep. Like I care about that. But like I said, I can totally understand wanting to bike on a Friday evening.
From Dec. 22, 2008 to mar. 14, 2010 I posted about my daily commute in Madison, Wisconsin. It was fun to log pictures of the bike path and my brief thoughts and weather conditions throughout the year. Then I got interested in other things and stopped blogging for over a year. I still commute daily, even longer now (7 miles one way) and absolutely love it.
Now I'm blogging my biking experiences while traveling. I love to take my road bike and mountain bike along with me on road trips in the car. It's a great way to see the country and meet locals. It makes business and family trips a lot more fun, in addition to vacations.
