The scenery today was pretty similar to the last two
days. Lots of farms with corn and soybeans and lots of
small towns. The roads today were generally very nice -
smooth asphalt and little traffic.
Susan and the rest of the lunch crew cooked us up
quite a feast at lunch, featuring grilled chicken and
corn on the cob.
We had a couple guest riders with us today - Les's
father and Roberta's significant other joined us. They
picked a nice day to ride.
When we arrived in Troy, Richard's family was waiting
for him. They drove down from Michigan to surprise him.
I think he was pretty astonished :-).
One thing that continues to surprise me is how few
recreational cyclists (outside our group) I've seen on
the road. I would have expected to see at least a few
riders out on a Saturday with such perfect weather, but
not a one. In the Seattle area, I would have been
surprised if I saw less than 50 on a day like today.
