Solo Belle Plaine

Every now and then, instead of sleeping, my night is full of lying in bed without the benefit of my eyes closing. It was about 3:30AM when sleep was finally able to settle my imagination. I Needed to be up at 7 to be riding by 8 so I could be ready for an appointment at 3pm...yes I may have gotten 3 hours of sleep last night. But I made my appointment and got an 85 mile solo ride in to Belle Plaine.
TV, beer and pizza was all I could muster this evening, I'll be in bed by 8:30 on a Saturday night.
I love the route I took today, and even at my pace, slowed by lack of sleep, it was still great. First long-sleeved jersey and knicker ride of the fall. Great conversation, although I did look over my shoulder a few times to make sure, out in the middle of nowhere, nobody saw that I was talking to myself. Just for the record, I'm pretty good company, and can carry on very interesting discussions on a wide range of topics. 83/17.9

I'm sure you had a wonderful peaceful ride, but please consider joining us on top of Seeley Fire Tower hill for the Fat Tire race next year.
