 With Bill and Around
I rode the Surly from home to Cleveland Park and took the Laurens bypass to Gower Estates where I met Bill. It took us a little bit to get going and we rode fairly slow today. Then once we were home we got him situated then he had me uncrate a mini-fridge and set it up where it would be easy for him to use. By then it was noon and I still needed another 20 miles to get in my miles. I cut through his neighborhood where I pretty much got lost in Gower Estates, but I finally escaped! I crossed Pleasantburg at MacAlister Square and worked my way to Sliding Rock Creek Park and took the trail back to the Swamp Rabbit Trail. I took it to Cleveland Park and followed the trail to Furman. I stopped there and talked with officer Mike. I was feeling pretty whipped by then. I rode down the trail and got off after the Swamp Rabbit Cafe to ride to White Duck Taco. I had a fish taco and a crispy chicken BLT taco with tea and water. Then I rode home from there. I downed 7 24-ounce bottles water, tea, and my drink. Riding slow with Bill really wears me out, but we took a lot of time and I ended up riding with the big heat. But it was fine as th esun wasn't out.
