Bike Ride

The temperature was a bit chilly on our early-morning start.

Seven started the ride.
This is 22 miles into our 1st day, at the trail-head of the Wabash.
I'm 3rd from the left.


I organized a bike ride for the last weekend of September. The weather was great and we had great fun! I love being outdoors and I love being on my bike!

Five of us spent the night at Shenandoah, Iowa. My total for the ride was 136 miles (220 kilometers). It wasn't as far as I had aimed for, but I felt a bit sluggish on Saturday and on Sunday afternoon we had STRONG head winds that really slowed us down. Much of our ride was on the beautiful Wabash Trace Nature Trail in the southwest corner of Iowa.

We will all have many wonderful memories of the outing!

I was there when you took some of the fall pix.
I saw the pix. of Agnes with her sewing machine to make a living....wasn't it stolen from her?
What an honor to be a friend of a missionary to Kenya.
