Relative Something

*this* John W. Hays’ take on things and experiences

Touring Morris

with 2 comments

Today, if everything went as planned, we awake in Morris, MN. A prairie oasis on the Pomme de Terre River. If there is a Dairy Queen within walking distance of the high school, there’s a good chance I visited it last night.

I love… that so many of the brilliant people who do this bike ride with me every year share a fondness for walking after a long day on a bike seat, plus they seem to have an equal interest in searching out ice cream at every opportunity.

Bonus love… Biking all day long burns so many calories, I can indulge in ice cream treats more often than usual.

I miss… Cyndie’s home cooking, especially her fabulous breakfasts, the incredible “love-lunch” sandwiches she makes for me on work days, and the delicious dinners that somehow keep tasting better than the best one she made the time before.

  1. What do the green markers mean? How long was this first leg?

    • I think they denote turn details. I have yet to use the map instructions. Most turns are also marked with paint in the road.
      The first day was 81.6 miles on my bike computer. Oofda that was a long day that ended in high heat, followed by heavy weather that forced organizers to move us into school gym overnight. Some tents took quite a beating, but luckily mine survived unscathed.
