Today went pretty much as I had planned, but it was strange nonetheless. I got up early and ate breakfast #1 before driving to Hartford for the Washington County Bicycle Club ride. The 30-mile route was beautiful, taking me on many roads I had never visited before in the county’s southwestern corner. It wasn’t the completely flat route I had expected, and the short-but-steep climb on St. Augustine Road was a nice surprise. It’s twisting and tree-covered, so I didn’t know when it was going to flatten out. Too bad there weren’t more people on the ride … must have been too sunny and warm for most of our members.
After the WCBC ride I drove back to West Bend for breakfast #2, then I rode to Grafton to watch two hours of racing in the Tour of America’s Dairyland. Then I rode home—completing a very fractured metric century—and took a nap. Then came dinner, then came mowing the lawn. Tomorrow? We’ll see. It might be an Eisenbahn State Trail day.
