Weather forecast is for rain/storms for the next couple days. That's great because my legs need a break.
Sunday was climbing Dumfries hills on the Wabash trace (first time for the season). Monday was struggling up Indian Creek Trail into 15-20 mph wind.
Did it again Tuesday, just further. Rode the Manawa, Indian Creek, bike shop, Trace trailhead loop. Over 3 miles into the wind. Stopped for rest and visit at Xtreme Wheels.
Met another cyclist/photographer (LandonRayburn.com). Had a nice visit.
Greatest park of Tuesday ride was flying down Harry Langdon and South Ave riding the wind!
Yesterday I header off to the Western Historic Trails Center. Went past to I-80. Stopped at the Center and visited a little.
On the way back to the car, I stopped by Leach Camper to see what I can do to sell the RV. I might get $2-3K from Leach, could get $4-5k through Craig's List or such. In any way, Think I need to try getting it running to be able to sell it. Doubt I could get much to get it "as is".
Back to the ride. By the time I turned off Veteran's Memorial Trail, heading back to the car on Lake Manawa Trail, my legs were getting tired. Had the ride been a mile or two longer, I would not have made it. My legs were "toast".
I could hardly move last night. Looking forward at a couple days off the bike.
Today's photo was taken yesterday on Western Historic Trail at the baseball fields. No photo taken during Tuesday ride.
