Saturday found a couple of us in the lovely hamlet of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.
(Apparently they like elephants, since even the Dairy Queen has one)
We were preparing to ride the CHIPPEWA FALLS CENTURY
of course we needed to eat dinner first . . .
Yup, that's right boys and girls, not only can you satisfy your craving for a brew,
you can have it with lefse . . .
(Patti, pay attention, new marketing opportunity?)
Since I know there is no way you believe this, I offer photographic proof
(just wondering: am I the only one who finds this very, very silly and strangely compelling?)
I had to explain lefse to one of my dining companions.
He confused it with lutefisk.
Morning arrives, we meet up with Rick & Penny
Rick offers to snap a photo
|(Who is that guy on the right? We never see his picture)|
Whereupon we realize, that of the five of us, three are named: RICHARD
(I have never before used the word: whereupon)
That's OK, says Penny . . . One of them spells it with a "Silent P"
We soon meet up with Jim from St Louis.
Jim is president of the St Louis Cycling Club which is the oldest continuously operating cycling club in the country. Coincidentally, is is located in St Louis
Jim told us he is so old, he recently had to change to Shimano Di2 components.
(Never mind that he may have been the fittest rider in attendance)
OH yeah . . . back to the ride . . .
IT WAS A BLAST!!!!!
Food was plentiful, and a big thanks the BOY SCOUTS
Weather was fine, the route UNBELIEVABLE!!!!
Mostly flat to slightly rolling, with perfectly scripted, flowing curves,
dips and short climbs . . . PERFECT
and What ride in Wisconsin would be complete without
Looks like these folks took up the offer for free Leinies beer
