Just finished Fat Tire Ride, around Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.  Not as easy as I anticipated.  Hilly south side of lake and one particular one mile climb of 15%.  Heavy rain about 5 miles from finish. Good news was we were replenishing lost fluids so stayed until the rain moved on.  Good time was had by all.

Birthday-thought about riding my age but decided I would take forever.   Just passed 5,000 miles on my bike computer since May.  Got a late start this year due to the long, cold winter.  Will probably get another 1,000 before indoor biking begins.
Riding with a helmet cam is one of the best things I have done in a long time.  Putting all near misses on a flash drive to show how idiot drivers are effecting biking.
Fat Tire ride in Lake Geneva is coming up this week.  Should be quite a struggle.
