September 3, 2009...
Pedaling through the backroads of Iowa has been pretty darn cool. Once
I discovered the right roads allowing me the freedom to enjoy the
scenery and not keep worrying about excessive traffic, I have had some
of my best biking days.
The small towns in Iowa give you that sweet feeling.
I passed a school where classes were in session and thirty bikes were outside...and none locked up. Where can you find that?
I passed a 70+ year old lady smiling on her riding mower mowing her big ranch yard. Where can you find that?
When you live in the big cities, sometimes it's not about what you gain...but what you lose.
Iowa and Nebraska have both taught me that.
