7 a.m. was a little early for Andy
Having a chat...like old mates...
Up on some ridge in Athens, IL
Some really cool, narrow, hilly road
Zoom in and see if you can find Andy...huge hill!
Mr. Andrew Lister and I met at the park at 7 a.m. for a longer ride. Took some new roads out to Petersburg and Athens, IL where we encountered many challenging hills. I thought I wasn't in Illinois anymore because it was such different terrain. The heat was very bad and our jerseys were heavy with sweat. Needed to refuel and get more electrolytes a few times. Got some good hill riding in and had some good company along the ride. Riding 70 miles with a Cat 1 rider in the hills....not the easiest day of riding, but...its good for you! Great ride and very cool route that I plan on riding many more times this year. Cooler weather is on the way!
