Those are the things that have been running through my mind. I am a bit far away from the roads where I used to ride with my Slender Fungi and that has me concerned and worried. I have been riding my road bike, my fixed gear and hitting up the Water Fall Glen trail but to be honest it just all feels kinda empty. There isn't enough suffering, the surfaces are too smooth, I cannot ride my fatter tires. So I must find some kind of solution to this dilemma. I have been dreaming of organizing a ride out in Iowa but my weekends have been booked solid trying to settle back in IL. So, for the time being I am dreaming and thinking of all these things while I ride and sleep.
I have this bug, this yearning that something is missing. I must escape to Iowa, must take the Fargo and go for a long gravel ride.
