Just Riding Along… Scouting Trip.
Beautiful, windy day in SW Ohio today. Had around an hour and a half to explore this afternoon on the Troll. I have been in the planning stages of a bikepacking trip, so today I loaded up a few things in the front panniers and hit the road to scout out how long it would possibly take me to reach my destination. I didn’t really have enough time to ride the entire route, but riding what I did today gave me an idea on how long it will take to get there. Great day to be out, but the return trip was brutal due to a crazy headwind. Normally, I do not mind them, but with loaded panniers a headwind really sucks the life out of you. Apart from that issue, it was a nice little ride of dirt and tarmac.
Started off on the local trails.
Ended up on some side roads, following the Buckeye Trail. Note the fiberglass sports car body lying in the weeds…
Hanging out in the flowers, which I believe are Dutchman’s Breeches.
Total miles for today, around 17. Mixed with dirt, tarmac, and a nasty headwind? I am beat this evening.
Just keep spinning…
