First of all, thanks to everyone who doanted to our ride. We really appreciate it, hopefully some of you will join us next year!
So, some how I managed to retrieve my camera out of my back jersey pocket, take a picture, put the camera back, while riding and not fall off my bike.
The ride started in Mequon (meck-kwan) which is about 10 miles north of Milwaukee, and ended in Sturgeon Bay, abotu 40 miles north of Green Bay. It's a great ride. We didn't break any records, speed-wise, but we had a blast.
Here are some picutres, I was told there were 800 riders.
Above is the registration. It's always nuts!
Here's a good shot of the Lake Michigan. For those of you not from WI, yes this is a lake and no you can't see the other side. Many people not from here don't realize how big this lake is.
Just thought is was a cool shot.
The road leading Sheboygen, lunch is coming up!
Lunch on Day 1
Finish of Day 1. I was just happy to be done. We showered, ate, and fell asleep at 4:30PM. Woke up at 8, went back to bed at 8:30, slept 'til 6 AM.
Some poeple camp on the bluff in Manitowoc, it's a pretty sweet view.
Now some shots from the second day. I thought about getting some shots of Point Beach. But on second thought, I didn't think taking pictures of the a Nuclear Plant would be a good idead.
Leaving on Day 2
Sunflowers on the bluff, if I were taller you'd be able to see the lake in the background better.
The end of Day 2.
Like I said we had a blast. Day one took about 5-1/2 hours and day 2 only took 4-1/2 hours. For some reason day 2 we were averaging 18 miles per hour.
Pretty good for only getting on our bikes 2 times before. I really think the cyclical nature of doing hundreds and hundreds of kettlebell swings made all the difference.
Well, I hoe the pics convince a few of you to join us next year, you wont regret it.
'til next time.
