One day of riding the Shocker
The greatly feared Great Western Trail
The Shocker. Ari's fitness bike
Decided to keep Giugi off the school bus as much as possible. The reason is that it takes her over 40 minutes to complete a 1.5 mile journey. And she has to do a switch at the high school. So starting this week we have been leaving the house much later and riding the trailabike to school. It takes 10 minutes, she gets some exercise, and she arrives happy to class. I then came home and had time to prepare lunch and get my ass to work. Hopped back on the Shocker and rode to work and back. Worked all day, came home and Giugi was getting ready for bed. She was telling the wife how she rode to school and some girls were asking her about her bike. At 9:00 p.m the Slender Fungus ride took place. BTW we are glad you missed it. Temps were warm and it was muggy. Lots of Corn Moths, Spider webs and Mosquitoes kept us busy. Rode into St. Charlies, Got into town, did a couple hills and took the long way home. I totalled a metric century on the Shocker while Gumby clocked 46 miles for the day. Came home around 12:30 a.m. showered, went to bed and passed out. Trans Iowa is starting to infiltrate my brain. I am already thinking about bikes, training and so forth. Gumby is talking about coming along for support. April is slowly starting to take shape.
