We didn’t get too early a start this morning. I slept in, then sat around like I’d forgotten we were going to ride. Neither of us was beating any world records. After all, we needed to let the weather warm up first.
So, we left the campground on the way to the start of the ride. Our maps are good, but not that specific for a vehicle. We may have driven past it the first time. But we went back and Michelle was on her way. I offered her a set of RV keys just so we wouldn’t lock them both in, but we never have before so it didn’t seem worth it. While she rode I went to WalMart for a few essentials.
I had a sick feeling as I left the store with my trusty bag of rubber gloves and toilet paper. Peering through the window when I got to the RV confirmed it. There were two sets of keys inside there and it was locked up tight. In the meantime Michelle had texted to let me know the bike path she was on was gravel so she was turning around. Instead of me meeting her back at the start, she met me at WalMart. While we waited for the locksmith she looked at google maps and found an alternate route.
It was quite a delay and the actual riding started about 1 p.m. which makes it hard to get as many miles in as we had hoped. Add to that, neither of us has been riding enough to be in great shape and there were a lot of hills. Count on me to come up with excuses!
And now we are in Cumberland Wisconsin enjoying a nice campground on the lake. Tomorrow, weather permitting, Lord willing, we can go further than 40 miles.
