Title: Adventure Log 201501
Daily Ride: Definitely
This will be a live updated/edited blog.
I somewhat spontaneously planned this adventure. This will be the first of many outside adventures this year. And I am super excited.
•Ride my Trek HulkRip over a wooden bridge that was originally built in 1863
•I want to create and also enjoy a few Arcadia Ales Sky High Rye cans in some key placed check-ins.
•I want to enjoy the weather as the high is claiming to be 14* C.
•I want to have a great ride, do a bit of elevation gain throughout, take some awesome pics and update this blog as much as possible. Which I always write on my Notes iPhone app and then copy and paste with magic.
•I also somewhat planned a Vegan lunch that I’ll pack and enjoy at The Red Covered Bridge Park.
-Due to heavy, dense and extremely wet airy fog, I’m going to depart via bicycle at 1100.
•To Be Continued/Updated/Edited
RIDE CANCELLATION DUE TO FOG AND FEAR OF NOT BEING SEEN.
Those Vegan sandwiches I packed for lunch are amazing!
-Leftover “Corned Beef” Seitan, charred, and diced
-Veganaise combined with celery seed, paprika, cayenne, mustard and garlic p.
-Sliced onion, tomatoes and cucumber
-On toasted Rye bread
I decided to try my luck doing a bit of hiking. I knew it was gonna be messy at Starved Rock State Park, so I brought a few beers. My goal was to hike to this cave/crevous that is roughly (muddy & icy) eight kilometers from the lodge. Nothing crazy, but a decent hike. I did not succeed in hiking to the crevously cave, due to an error in timing with my pickup ride. It was fun and challenging in a few spots that I chose to venture Lewis and Clarke style. I took a bunch of pics and here are a few.
