Brent and I have exactly one week until we go on our grand tour of Trempealeau, Wisconsin. We have been adding the miles and making final preparations for our trip. Last week was one of my best cycling weeks ever. In 7 days I covered 140 miles! In the next 7 days I hope to cover a few more miles and let my body get just a little recovery in before we log some big miles in the rolling hills of West Wisconsin. I have to admit I am a little nervous about the hills, but I know I will be able to eventually get over them. Now all we have to do is to pack, and pray that the weather is great, or at least decent! I'm not sure we have a proper name for this tour yet, Brent suggested Tour De Wiss, but I'm not so sure on that. Any suggestions? We will be riding six different loops over three days while we are there. For the fun of it we are calling them stages. Anyway, I am really looking forward to this trip. I will have my bike in the shop early this week just to make sure everything is in working order before we go on the trip.
Here is the group ride I did with the Elkhart Bike Shop this Wednesday:
