My biking addiction

I was able to stay off my bike Sunday, occupying my time instead by unloading the camper. But Monday I was ready to go again.

I "only" logged 12 miles, but they were hilly. In prior years, biking was the last thing on my mind after RAGBRAI ended. This year was different, as I didn't even want RAGBRAI to end.

Plus, I was anxious to try out the IPod speaker system Team CoeBRAI bought me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I'm hoping to ride out to Sutliff Cider soon, but I don't know that this weekend will work. I'm officiating a wedding and participating in Relay For Life, so there may not be time. Soon though.

Also, for anyone interested in a reunion ride, consider joining the Hawkeye Bicycle Association's Swine Trek. Postponed by the flooding until Aug. 30, it offers 25, 50, 75 and 100-mile options. Call me crazy, but I'm planning to go for my first century.

Cue "Bicycle Race" by Queen. Or was it STYX?

We were running behind and didn't get to stop at Sutliff Cider, so let me know when you go in case I can join you. We're in for Swine Trek...
