Tuesday was the last day of my vacation. We took Jan’s bike to Sunshine Bike
and she had her saddle
adjusted. They lowered it ⅜” and put the nose down a tad. After lunch we headed out for a road trial (it did not hurt that the conditions were good for a ride.) We started from Temple Israel on FR 193 and went to Rogersville and back via FR 194 and FR 186. This is a good little ride and 186 is more fun going west than east.County Line Road with walnut trees on the right
- A perfect day to ride with promise of more to come
This view is one reason why I like FR 194, rolling with good views of the countryside
- A Missouri Century Farm dairy on 194
- A look back west along County Line Road and 125
- Bovines contentedly munching away
- We took a break at the Hardy’s in R’g’s’v’lle
- I would not think that this trash was left by any cyclist….
- Here is another example of the incredible amount of trash we saw along the roads
A ‘Beware of Dog’ sign, but no dogs
- These llamas are on a Missouri Century Farm
I experimented with a couple of shots to get a different perspective
We had a steady south and west wind for the whole ride.
- A greenhouse covered in plastic sheeting
- A barn close to the old Mentor School House
- Back at the synagogue. I appreciate this congregation allowing riders to launch from their parking lot.
- Loading up for home
Jan said she could have done more, but not ol’ Two Feet. I bonked about a mile before the end, not having had enough protein for lunch. Live and learn.
