Tour de MOPAC East
I celebrated the completion of my Lincoln job and the upcoming move to Pittsburgh with a nostalgic ride of the MOPAC trail. Started the MOPAC at 33rd Street and rode out to 334th Street (just past the town of Wabash). Aside from a short chase by 3 dogs near Wabash (I had to sprint), the ride was perfect. Conditions were on the humid side, but refueling with H2O and Gatorade at the gas station in Elmwood certainly saved my butt. The 57-mile trip was completed in 3 hours and 40 minutes. Not the fastest pace, but it was a great way to prep for RAGBRAI next week. Ride on!
