Somebody, somewhere, did something, anonymously, and we um, I mean, these bike riders showed up all in the same place at the same time, brakes and lights optional, and rode around town on an alley cat style scavenger hunt. First I know of for our town, and an exciting way to spend the evening. Highlights included cemetary gravestone reading, creepy churches, and old hospital buildings. Most memorable moment, bombing north in the southbound lane of Mormon Coulee into traffic with no lights, and hooking a louie in time at the DNR facility and grave orama.
Future rides can be seen at http://laxalleycat.blogspot.com/. Thanksgiving, Xmas lights, and an ice crusher in February could, possibly be in the works. But it's all unsubstantiated rumerage for now.
With winter quickly approaching, it's time to get out the Lake boots, sharpen the spikes and contemplate broken hips. Rock on. Here is a teaser - http://www.digave.com/videos_ice.html
Oh by the way, my three day bike tour went like this : cold, rainy, muddy, miserable, fun as hell. That was the first day. Just repeat. Got in two overnighters to Perrot as well, minimalist. Tarp, sleeping bag, cup & spoon. Boogey children. Good stuff.
