I rode with rando George B on this Underground Railroad route (#4391) on a nice summer Sunday.
George is a stronger rider, so I was riding above my normal pace, getting a bit of a workout and keeping up my Saltstick capsules intake to avoid cramping.
Lots of nice country along this route. We enjoyed seeing an eagle take flight from the ground along McKillup road.
has done a lot of randonneuring, and tells good stories, such as riding
thru the night until he started hallucinating other riders coming up
Or when he thought he had gone over the time limit on a ride, and, riding along at a leisurely pace, was surprised to find people cheering him across the finish line with only seconds to spare.
And the route where his nature break is usually bothered by attacks of green-head flies.
And there was the time he was cold from riding, and at a bar full of bikers ordered hot tea.
Good times. Thank heavens for rando-nesia.
Now 7/12ths of the way to my second P-12. On the Spesh Roubaix.
