In a unanimous decision Jameson Irish Whiskey has been replaced by Templeton Rye Whiskey which is produced in the beloved, gravel strewn, wonderous American state of Iowa. Good on you if you can find it. Good on you if you are sipping some right now. Good on you if you are supporting local, small businesses.
The Slender Fungus ride on Wednesday had another appearance by Kitty. Though the poor guy has a lot more riding to do to achieve acceptance by the S.F.C.A.Hitting the east side trails by the Fox River.
We met at 830 pm at the A. house and departed promptly heading eastbound since I had promised Frankie doodle my Cyclocross Bible by Simon Burney. We arrived at his house around 10 pm to drop off the the book and then headed north out of St.Charles. Gumby was all confused and lost with the city lights and all that folk walking about on the sidewalks. He wanted out fast and we slipped through some back streets and we were on the trail heading north to do the Al Capone loop. We made it there and did the loop. Kitty made it, I bailed on the 42x16 and Gumby ran out of juice since he was already cramping. We headed a bit more north on the trail and then crossed over til we found Silver Glen and Randall rd. We took Silver Glen to Swanberg , then Empire, then I.C. Trail rd, then the GWT and ended the ride at my house around 1 something. A quick bottle of water for Gumby, a jacket for Kitty and then I rode to Dekalb and back to finish the Metric Century I had in mind. It was cold and damp and the Singlespeed had really cooked my legs.
