After three weeks of summer cold [me], Jan and I were finally able to get out on Saturday and put some miles behind us.
We picked the Frisco Highline Trail which goes northwest out of Springfield and then up north to Bolivar.
After reaching Willard we went north on County Road Z and took a stop at the Willard/Cox Health Center. It looked like a fixie had beat us to it.
A few weeks back I came into ownership of a Garmin Oregon [no, they did not pay me to say that]. I know it is not specifically designed for cycling [rather for hiking] but it does a good enough job. So, with GPS in hand we struck out away from the trail and enjoyed some of the farm roads around the area.
Going from trail to road was fun and afforded us a wider variety of sights.
One thing that I have noticed more this summer is all the green. This may be since we had and bad drought last summer.
The Garmin did well [we were never going to get lost anyway] and we plan on extending our route up to Bolivar one day.
