A dozen or so members of the Melon City Bike Club rode at least 35 miles today to Buffalo Prairie, Ill., and back in what we call the Illinois Alps — one of the few places around here where there are multiple hills. Some in the group rode closer to 50 miles.
And, yes, I know my friends out West will laugh at what we consider hills.
In Buffalo Prairie, some of the group stopped for pie at Prairie Creek Market & Deli.I did not eat any pie even though this pictures makes it look as if I did.
It was a great day to ride. I even enjoyed the hills. Today brought my total to 236 miles for the month of March. Pretty sure I’ve never ridden so many miles before in March.
Worth noting: I stole this photo from a friend’s Facebook page because other friends in the picture think I am too addicted to my iPhone. So I left it where I couldn’t use it during the ride — no pictures, no calls, no text messages.
And don’t forget: RAGBRAI is only 117 days away.
