Winona Lake Trail
Saturday, as we know, I went mountain biking. I did a total of 40.8 miles up in Warsaw, Indiana at the Winona Lake Trail. If you are withing a hundred miles of this trail, it's worth the drive! The Winona Lake Trail is a truly nice single track trail that gets quite technical in many areas. I spent about 6 hrs riding this trail. As far as the temperature goes, it was about 95 degrees and truly mugly (There's a Hoosierism, mugly needs no definition if you've ever experienced it!).

Then we come to my “recovery” ride, yesterday! I set out for a little 20 mile recovery ride and wound up riding 75 miles! It just felt so good to be back on the road bike it just wasn't funny! I felt like I was gliding. Again, 95 and mugly, with no break from the sun. The loop I rode was out to Williamsport and back out through Battleground, Indiana and then home. I made my usual recharge stop at Panera's Bread on the Levee, where I had a bagel and some coffee. Hydration was definitely an issue yesterday, going through 6 liters of water, as well as a couple bottles of Ultra Fuel (Gaah, UF tastes like Listerine! It does keep me from bonking though!)
