Getting our Legs Primed

Hwy 74 South: 17.59 miles
Comments: Ride Time was 1 hour 25 minutes, average speed: 12.2

We set out today with no intended destination—just got on the bike heading east on CR 35 towards the Amish Market. We reached Hwy 74 and decided to give the newly-surfaced road a try. Traffic was minimal but the highway department decided to place a continuous rumble strip in the center of the shoulder making it impossible for us to use. We pedaled as fast as we could down Hwy 74 to get to our turn onto CR 6. We decided to avoid 74 in the future. The ride was very enjoyable, even with the grand hill up to Ma Daily’s Road. We are still working to get our legs in shape to handle the exciting bike season we have planned for 2011.
