Oh yes, it does rain in Kentucky! We awoke on Sunday, 10/6, to torrential rains, a very poor breakfast, and uncertain moods about biking. Our weather app on our phones showed lightening strikes ripping through solid clouds with 100 per cent chance of rain, possibly, water covered roads. What to do? 3 to 0, get in the car. Carol abstains! But, we’re not taking the freeway, we’re driving the bike route. How’s that for commitment? Let me tell you, when you’re driving up those hills and all you have to do is push the gas pedal, it makes one feel a little wimpy, I mean really, how hard would this be? Well, it takes a couple of hours to get to check this day off in the car. We check into a hotel in Brandenburg, KY. and then we do even more miles, we drive into Louisville. By now, you know we’re totally dedicated! We tour the city, not exactly hopping on Sunday, BUT, we tour the Mohammad Ali Center. What an inspiration, very moving. After, we do walk a bit around the city, in the drizzle, I might add, then we have a wonderful Persian Restaurant dinner. Very authentic, and wonderful, yes, this is in Louisville, KY. It’s a small world! Okay, more miles, we drive back to our hotel in Brandenburg, jump into bed, and Monday morning, we’re in our biking duds, ready to get back on the road. Oh, yes, and the sun is shining brightly, though the temperature, 47 degrees, reflects the feel of fall in the air, and we dug into our bags for long sleeves!
YES, it feels grand to be back in the saddle!
