Winter in Wisconsin seems to be holding on tenaciously this year. We’ve been riding, but it’s been curtailed (even though there are at least a few of us that really want to be putting in some longer rides in preparation for a certain event).
Most people would consider today’s weather to be miserable. We just call it Sunday. So we went for a ride.
All photos by Nathan Vergin, since his camera is waterproof, and mine isn’t.
After a spin down the lakeshore, we picked up the Capitol City Trail. Some of it was plowed and clear.
And some of it wasn’t.
But eventually we emerged from the trail, in Fitchburg.
After a stop at Barrique’s for coffee and warmth, we continued on, and found even more surface flooding. Some of it was only a few inches deep.
And some of it was rather deeper than that.
But no one went down, and we all rode through (walking would have been even worse).
All in all, it was a short ride (~30 miles) in conditions that grew increasingly worse throughout the day. But it was better than nothing.
And, it was the one-year anniversary of the first ride of the Church. So we had that going for us.
