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.
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.
