IL: Track and Back Bike Ride

Ocotber 18, 2008

This bike ride was in Des Moines, IA and somehow I convinced Mary to participate. You had your choice of 50 or 100 miles, including riding a few laps around the Iowa Speedway. This is how the day started--foggy and 35 degrees.

In the far distance is a huge hill. Iowa is so not flat.

A lap around the speedway. There is a sharp incline.
