Back to the ride. We got a late start. The sky looked dark and threatening. Away we went today hoping not to get lost today.
We started riding and soon found out that we had a hard cross wind with a bit of headwind.
So I felt a little like I was back in Iowa. There was a lot of corn today. Both sides of the road.
We road on an angle to get the benefit of the draft.
There was also fields of hay and straw. Apperently the guys think this part of the country stinks. As in smells. I told them. That's a healthy smell. Pigs, cows, chickens and turkeys. They taste great so I guess you have to put up with the smell. That's something about riding on a bike you just can't appreciate if your in a car.
Stopped at my favourite sag stop again today.
I also saw some nice old barns.
Here's a close up of this one.
As we got into London we rode on a trail through town.
The trail snaked along a river. I think it was called the tames river. We got to the Christian high school. Now I might have rode a few extra km to get here. I double checked and there was no marks on the road. The paper was a little off so I don't feel so bad.
We biked about 120 km today. The kitchen trailer came at the same time as the gear trailer. I was helping unload the trail when there was a loud bang from the direction of the kitchen trailer. Turns out that loud bang was my back tire. It had a nail that went right through it and out the side. I was going to put a new tube in but the tire has a bad sidewall. So I have to replace my tire. Oh we'll at least it didn't go flat on the ride.
