Post for May 18, 2021
I spent the morning gazing at the lake from my tent while I ate breakfast and packed my gear, at Camp Patmos near Hackensack.
When I started cycling, I looked forward to seeing more of the Paul Bunyon bike trails, from Hackensack to Brainerd. I’ve honestly seen nothing like those trails before. It’s like cycling down a ruler for hours. I’ve never cycled so straight for so long. Sometimes, I weaved my bike from one side of the trial to the other just to turn. Ok, I might be exaggerating a little, but when I did see a small curve, I’d get my hopes up for more, and the trail went straight again. I never realized how much cycling straight for so long can wear me down.
Of course, I still enjoyed the ride, but I think you’ll know what I mean from the pictures. Today’s song, from my bike-ride-playist, is Ring Around the Moon, in an attempt to add some curves to the day.
