I found some embryonic sprawl.
A few miles later, I found some more – larval, I’d say
By springtime, people will have moved into these houses, and started bitching about how the country farm roads are too small for their SUVs.
At long last, I was out of the sprawl!
Scenes like this are pretty much the whole point of these rides.
It looks like the Libertarians are out in force for the election this year. There were signs like this one all over the place. They will make excellent bicycle fenders.
In theory, I agree with most of what these guys stand for. In practice, however, they are completely bat-shit insane.
Overall, it was about 23 miles. This is the longest ride I’ve done in a while. I feel good. My face is windburned and my legs feel heavy. I’ll sleep like a log tonight.
