Go the Distance…

“Go the distance” he hears whispering from some etherial voice from the great beyond.  It’s a classic – Field of Dreams.  We went 65 miles today – well technically 64.759 according to my bike computer.  It was a great ride.  I discovered Wilbur, IN!  Never been there!


Two men sat in those wooden Adirondack chairs on the porch of the convenience store at the crossroads in Wilbur.  Looking like Kings, they greeted us with curious stares and quiet hellos.  No doubt these farmers had sat there on that porch in those chairs for years, and they hadn’t seen anything as curious looking as us in a while.  Cyclist are a bit odd looking, in all that spandex and color – but, we get people’s attention!  Remember that next time you pass one by in your car.


Anyway, it was a curious place.  I heard tales of the pancakes as big as your plate at the old restaurant across the street (Rosie’s I believe).  I also heard of how the health department shut that place down 2 years ago.  Also classic.  


After that, we climbed a killer hill and headed home.  All in all – a GREAT ride!  I can’t even remember those moments in the ride where I thought “What am I doing!??”– Classic!
