Rails to...what? Trails. As in choo choo trains.
Way uhh pie,
Birds flyyy over the rainbowmadefrombicycles,
Why then oh why kaint eye?
Needless to say I was way stoked with the Sauk Rail Trail. I visited with the designer/printer of the commemorative tee shirt from Saturday's ride to see if I could buy one, but they're 86'd. Seems that the planners underestimated the turnout and they're having to mail out shirts from a new run to some patient riders. Maybe I can snag one - it would be a treasure. If my tales of Iowa don't make you want to come here this should:
June 14 Menu Board at Kathy's Korner in Lake View, IA
Cheesy Potato & Hamburger Casserole w/Peas & Carrots & Choice of Bread
Just the thought of that meal broke da mouth.
I'm in Norfolk, NE tonight at a Super 8 motel not 2 miles from the eastern trail head to the Cowboy Trail, a recreation and nature trail that is the longest rails to trails conversion project in the country. The trail starts in the nearby park and stretches 321 miles to the west crossing 221 bridges and goes through 29 communities before reaching its end. If the rain slacks off I should be able to get my 50 in tomorrow.
