Instead of the “Horsin’ Around”, the Adventurer’s had hard work. Wind that increased from 8 mph to 17 mph, and the sudden arrival of 84 degree summer heat took its toll on us. 15 riders worked together as we wandered over roads that some of us hadn’t seen for years, or ever. By the time we reached Liberty Ctr, we were so tired we couldn’t really take advantage of the great tail wind. And issues? Try 4 flats, one before we even started! But we finished our longest ride of the season in good time, arriving back at Keener Park with 49 miles by 11:45. We averaged 16.8, an excellent speed considering the conditions and the stops.
Tim and Michelle Prand joined us after being MIA for a while. Suzanne Peats, Jim Binns and Pete Pirano chased us down, said hi, and then went on their merry way. And we had a visitor - Art Girten. Art and his wife are living on the road. He contacted Chuck then joined us on our jaunt. A great rider and addition to the group. I hope he’ll swing back through and join us again.
Next week’s Adventure? Deb’s “Luckey Haskin’s Trail” will be her Easy Rider Adventure, leaving from the Perrysburg Y for 45 miles of fun. Details to follow.
