Did a lot of riding today, wanted to clear my head. There is a trail that leads from the Northwest edge of Springfield, Mo up through Willard, Mo and ends some where that I can’t remember the name of. But the trail stops being paved a little bit past Willard so that is as far as I rode.
Getting to the trail was MORE of a headache than I thought it was going to be, had to ride on the shoulder of West Bypass which is a super busy kind of highway thing. The path was pretty straight and they had labeled the ground at certain miles which was awesome.
I put a picture of a cow, because I’m still amazed to be riding and look over and see a cow. Born and raised in Chicago, not used to it . Saw some rock piles, and when I got to the point where the trail turned into gravel I decided to turn around. Saw a llama? alpalca? thing? on my way back which I was kind of amazed at.
Oh, and check out my awesome spoke card
I google mapped my route there, then after wards I headed to a friends and back home. According to google I rode 33.2 miles today, which makes me quite happy.
