Shen Ride

The heavy rain left its mark

Nah, I'll take the mud bog trail, thanks...

Mostly stayed on the trace with the lovely Mr. 2Wheel and some other folks ducking out of the 30 mph steady headwinds. Not much respite on the Wabash, I'm afraid. Trail was "squishy" - making it very difficult to pedal. No chance for recovery. Same story on the road with the winds, as I found out. I finished the trip out, though some raised the white flag in Imogene. My legs were roasted after a very weird 55-ish miles. AM storms on Sunday forced an early return to Omaha. Boooo.

Sunday Breakfast Rides are still O-N. Couldn't make Ummy's Splendor. Kent's Convection (aka the 'Good Enuf' ride) is coming up. I'm catching some miles after work here and there. Talking to friends about Ragbrai, getting stoked.

Ahhhh.... Summer.
