Getting ready to ride




Brian talked me in to a bike ride from KC to St. Louis the first week of June on the Katy Trail. I got my Gary Fisher cleaned up and tuned and I've been riding once or twice a week in preparation. Today I'm going on a 25-30 mile ride along the Indian Creek trail that crosses the state line and comes back. Very nice, scenic, little ride.

Our trip in June will start just east of Kansas City and travel 25o miles or so on an old railroad line that has been converted in to a crushed limestone trail all the way to St. Louis. We'll do it in 3-4 days traveling about 70 miles per day. Should be a great experience.

Sounds like great fun for young folks! Bet you will have plenty of opportunities “to give a reason for the hope that is within you!”

Let me know if you need the sag wagon in central MO! Also in preparation for the trip, I highly recommend a movie night of American Flyers and/or Breaking Away.

Which Gary Fisher bike do you have? I just bought a Cobia 29 inch mountain bike and have been riding the dirt roads out where I live.

It's an older version of the bike in the picture- the Nirvana Hybrid.
