On Saturday, some cycling friends and I rode to Lawrence, Kansas. Lawrence is about 40 miles West of KC.
This is the "Non motorized vehicles prohibited" sign and Mark giving Desoto the thumbs down.
US Bicycle Route System jersey, I guess Desoto will not be a part if it.
Tim and his cool US Bicycle Route jersey.
Arriving in Lawrence, Kansas, we were greeted by this sign! Lawrence is indeed a very bike friendly community!
Rolling out of Lawrence we got caught in a storm and saught shelter for a few minutes until heading back on the road.
I met up with some Llama's on the way back. Amazing to see these animals in Kansas. They are very cool, but not nearly as interested in me as I with them.
The boys taking a moment to consider a alternate route home. The rain was light and kept us cool on this warm day.
Note to self: it was smart to ride a bike with fenders in the rain, but not to ride so close to bikes without fenders...notice all the dirt spots. :)
A fun ride with Mark Rainey and David Rainey aka, The Groody Brothers who specialize in bicycle restoration, and Tim Oberle on July 3rd, 2010. I rode my main bike, Trek steel mountain bike that weighed about 50 lbs loaded. Yup, 50. Mark was on a Trek 2200 road bike, David rode a Trek Hybrid, and Tim was on a Surly, Long Haul Trucker with 26in wheels. We all had different bikes but all were able to keep up and have fun!
