So as I spend my last night here in the great state of Michigan, I’m reflecting on the magnificent week I’ve had on the lower peninsula. I’ve met some amazing folks, biked some amazing routes, ate some amazing food and in general had a blast. I even left myself a permanent reminder, of course.
I want to thank everyone I’ve met in my week here: Jene’e and John and Meg in Boyne city. Nesta, Shawn, Brooklyn, Heather, and everyone in Traverse City: TC in TC was a blast!!! (special thanks to Kyle for hooking the ink up) Bob in Luther. Joyce and Roger in Midland. Pam and Jay in Silverwood. John and John in Wales. Also, the lovely Pere Marquette rail trail; a great ride.
I’ll be hitting Canada tomorrow. Health care is free but the cost of a roaming iPhone is quite expensive. I’d like to keep blogging, so if you’ve got a spare buck or two or ten, feel free to hit the paypal donation button. I’m not riding for charity but I am out of money!!
Also update on my wheel: cracks going slowly. I’m walking it over bumpy sections and shifted heavy weight to the front. I’m gonna chance it and try to make it home. Wish me luck and thanks to John for the info on my situation.
