Saturday Road Bike Ride
Time to do a tour to check trail conditions. the first stop was Lake Manawa Mountain Bike trails. I was on the road bike, so could not ride the trails. But, from what I could see from the road, they are slowly drying out. In the next couple days I should take the hardtail back there to check them out more closely. Gee! Maybe they couple brought rideable before the snow flies.
At the Wabash Trace trailhead, it was a bit warm. Dropped the jacket. Almost dropped the l/s undershirt. Once on the trail, was glad I had it. Cycling shorts, l/s spandex shirt, and jersey was just right.
On over to the Western Historic trail. Nothing has been done over the last week. Wondering if the construction company doing the paving on The Trace is the same one that's working on the Council Bluffs trails. Seems like if activity on the Trace, there is none in CB.
One the way up to Big Lake I ran into Greg and Jodi on the Iowa Riverfront Trail. Stopped and visited with them for a while. Stopped at Big Lake for granola bar and Gatorade. Then the straight shot back to the Wabash Trace trailhead.
