Slender Fungus Nocturnals
Fox River Trail around Midnight
St. Charlies skyline.
Gumby, B.B and I headed out for the weekly dose of riding that we normally do on wednesdays. Weather was finally manageable and we rode at a brisk pace out to rte 47. The trail still has some ice so we took Old State to the Speedway and than hopped on the trail. B.B and I then rode out to St.Charles and rode of the ped bridge that goes over the Fox. We continued north on the fox river trail and ended up by Al Capone's hideout. Did some steep hill riding and then headed back. Wind was stiff out of the south and the temps started to drop. Made the long drag home as the night was getting longer and longer. We realized we were tired because of the time change. The trail felt soggier and we stopped several times to get energized and to empty a flask. Arrived home very tired around 2 am. Total miles for the day 69. Metric Accomplished. Sunday's Century accomplished. Today will call for shorter ride and relaxing. Ari
