First day with true team biking -- so we cover more miles by not doing all legs, the way we have to do later when we are self-sagging when Deb goes back to Chicago to take her class.
|If Brett Hulsey is as helpful to all of his constituents as he was to us, he's worth considering. We saw a lot of his signs in local yards. See http://www.brett4us.org/ for more info.|
We saw a lot of his yard signs, and he clearly knew a lot about bicycling and bike advocacy, so we wished him luck.
Lots of headwinds again today on the way to Sauk City (on backroads, and then the shoulder of US12). We met for lunch in Sauk City. Abby and Beth did the next leg to Reedsburg, encountering steep hills (Abby's max speed was 42, with a headwind).
Abby and I did the last leg on the 400 trail to Elroy. We got stopped by a man active with the 400 trail, who snapped some pictures (picture to come) of us, a jogger, a woman with two small children in a trailer, and another older gentleman on a bike -- pretty much hitting all summer constituencies except dog walkers.
Fun fact: the trails are used by snowmobilers in the winter -- who have a 55 mile per hour speed limit during nighttime hours. That seems fast, but I don't know much about snowmobiling.
