For the record, I do more than make kimchi; in fact, last week some of my home-girls and I biked to Madison and back. Here’s how we do bike touring:
Sunday, October 17th
9am: We loaded up Julie’s truck with all the bikes and got a head-start on the trip by being dropped off in Waukesha at the start of the Glacial Drumlin Trail. Knocking off those first twenty miles–all of which are uphill and through West Allis–was a great decision!
No joke, these cows were striped like oreos cookies. And, this is my steel horse named Cow (named early in the week on the return from Angie and my bike/camping trip to Belgium, Wisconsin).
1pm: What bike trip is complete without some mid-ride glamor shots?. (Warning, don’t leave your construction site unattended.)
Monday, October 18th
After an awesome brunch, stopping at a thrift-store and saying hi to Jeff at Revolution Cycles we rode out to Planet Bike wherein we got to personally thank all the fellows for bringing the “stanky leg” sexy, safety garders into our lives and also play a couple games of ping-pong.
Tuesday, October 19th
9:30am: After a quick breakfast and more importantly, a double of dose of coffee, we hit the trail back to Milwaukee. For the record, fall is the best time of year for bike trips in Wisconsin. The air’s crisp and cool yet it’s still warm enough to bike in shorts (or in our case a skirt) and t-shirts. The earthy smell of leaves crunching under tires. It’s the best!
2pm: Once again, I was climbing things and we were eating fried food and drinking whiskey & beer. And for the record, the Sullivan Saloon is amazing!
Thanks Angie, Shouty & Coco for an amazing bike ride!
