I rode out to Lockwood up the hill on the Old Hardin Road. It was a rather uneventful ride except having to dodge all of the gravel, rocks, potholes and debris on the roads and path. I hit a rock that appeared out of nowhere and spent the next ten minutes repairing the resultant pinch flat.
I pushed myself to make it to the top of the hill. It wasn't easy since I haven't ridden more than to work and back in the last two months. It was a nice view up top though and I got to cruise back down at 30+ mph to the tune of Life in the Fast Lane by the Eagles.
When I got back to town, on probably the busiest road of my trip, I finally turned over 4,000 miles. I can now put the bike away for the winter without thinking about the last 20 miles.
Oh, and my back loosened up and we had a great Thanksgiving dinner. I am thankful for my bike/physical therapy that made the rest of the day more pleasant. And very thankful for my incredible wife that pushed me to go for a ride and prepared an awesome meal. Time to hang out with the family some more.
