Beautiful Tuesday Morning for Bikrarian
Yesterday , we rode from Spencer to Humboldt - the highest mileage day all week. It was WINDY. The winds were from the south and we had 30 m iles straight into it early in the day. By the time I got to the nice town of Humboldt, I was ready to fall over from exhaustion. There was a station of sports massage therapists set up near my camp so I splurged on a 20 minute massage. It felt wonderful - it was worth the $20 price tag. My only dissapointment with Humboldt was that the party and entertainment was just 2 blocks from my campground. We heard music and associated partying until midnight. Now I like a little party too but after and exhausting day of bike riding and the promise of waking up at 4:15 the next day to do it all again that was a little much for my taste. Maybe in Hampton we'll get a quiet campground.
I hope to see "Quadzilla" on the ride but haven't as of yet. Quadzilla is a bicycle built for four often ridden by a family with 2 kids on the middle seats. Makes it sort of tough for them to goof off and get away from the parents - if they don't want to walk to the next town, they had better be ready to ride when mom and dad are.
I am totally enjoying my quest to stop at all of the libraries on by big ride. Only a few have been closed and I missed Rock Rapids and Spencer because I was too darn tired to go find them.
Time to get back on the bike.
