Just in time for this major milestone, my dear friend and long-time cycling buddy Pamela came to town for a visit. Thanks to tremendous support from Nona and Papa Bear, I was able to get out and relive my old, pre-Lemon life for a few days, and see some of the glorious countryside around where we live. As I'd been told (and remembered from my cross-country cycling jaunts) Wisconsin is a grand place for road riding. The weather cooperated beyond our wildest dreams, sunny and nearly 80 degrees every day--actually one of the best stretches of weather we've had all summer! We climbed a surprising number of hills, ate some great food, caught up on many months worth of friendship, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
I'll just include a few pictures of scenery to give you all a sense of what you're missing, and remind you that none of these vistas are more than 25 miles from our house!
