What Should I Call This Post?

I had a lot of time to think about what to write about today.  I was the SAG driver, and the riders were very strung out on the 84 mile route--often two hours or more between when the first ones left and the last ones arrived. That was a lot of 'wait' time, and hence, time to think.  What did I come up with to write...........I forget.  Whatever it was, it seemed like a good idea at the time, though!

It was a perfect day to ride--beautiful weather, beautiful roads beautiful countryside.  Hopefully all will be duplicated tomorrow when I am back on my bike.

What I missed today while I sagged, besides the picture perfect riding were:
  1. Riding the Afton Alps
  2. Seeing the widest  point in the Mississippi River--6 miles across. I may have seen it, but I am not busy looking for my 'sheep' and watching traffic.
  3. Seeing the world's largest boot in Red Wing, MN.  (but I've seen the big shoe in front of Brown Shoe Co, so anything else would pale)
  4. Visiting the National Eagle Center in Wabasha, but I did see wild turkeys--they look just like the Thanksgiving pictures!
  5. Eating lunch....lots of food in the SAG wagon though. 
  6. A train the had a sign on it that said 'No Humping"  (things that make you go 'hmmm')
All in all, though, it was a lovely day, whether in the car chasing riders or on a bike.  I am looking forward to riding tomorrow; cross your fingers that I will get the same weather we had today!!
