The Hills

7 a.m. was a little early for Andy

Andy cruisin

Having a 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!
