|A bunny at sunset Wednesday.|
In two days, I rode 20 miles, 13 on Wednesday, 7 today.
That’s not much, given that it was humid and warm, and not terrible for biking. The RAGBRAI pre-ride should be passing through Hiawatha, and I need to get in a lot more saddle time myself. I also need to get Francis in shape for RAGBRAI, and these are not entirely compatible goals since Francis is the only bike ready to ride that I own right now.

At least I did get the 20 miles in, thanks mostly to my wife practically tossing me out the door Wednesday afternoon.
And on that late afternoon ride, I did encounter the sunset bunny. A rabbit was sitting on the Lindale Trail and stayed there as I got fairly close. Close enough to take its photo, anyway. I thought it looked pretty cool, back lit by the setting sun. May it be a good omen for bicycle rides.
And now, to bed. It’s getting late, I’m tired from my garden chores, and maybe there are more miles to ride tomorrow!
