August was a rather WET month with too much rain...
Good for the yard and the farmers — but not good for riding our bikes!
At least for planning a longer route that is.
NO—there is no black spot between my eyes... just shade.
That is a happy WeFie from August 28.
August 28 it was 32°C and not raining after a long time...
Pieter at a sturdy built bridge over big creek.
We stop for a sip of water and a brief break—at 93.5 you can't go on and on!
The weather on September 18 was again a lovely 31°C
Me at the same bridge for a sip of water... not from the creek but from the bottle 😉
Contrary to Limburg/The Netherlands where you have safe bike lanes AND lots of stops with a bench and often a coffee shop nearby.
We paid Kyle Wayne Dinkheller a visit at his memorial in Dudley, close to Interstate 16, where he got killed after he'd stopped some guy that was speeding over 90 miles an hour.
Kyle left his expectant wife and 22 month old daughter behind...
Such a tragedy in January 1998 and we will never forget that!
Also how the community came together in supporting his family.
Resting on the cross tire as there are no benches.
On September 21, we spotted a baby donkey on the way over but as we came back it hid in the shade...
Cute as can be!
On sunny September 25, we rode in 31°C
Spunky girl greeted us on the driveway, where they love to chill out...
During the devastating hurricane Ian, even our area was affected by the weather change.
Only 18°C on September 29
Another happy WeFie from October 6.
Yes, a blissful relationship on wheels...
Our lovely Indian Summer was back with 28°C
Lovely stretched out fields in the hilly area on October 6.
On October 9, we rolled again and here I'm standing on the side of an overpass over Interstate 16.
October 9, it sure was lovely weather at 25°C
After squatting down on the cross tires during our previous ride—we spotted these seats for taking our break.
Easier for getting up at our age 😉
Happy me on said bench in Dudley, almost having devoured my rice cake...
Just as I was about to leave, I spotted this plaque:
IN HONOR OF DR. JIM KIBLER
Thank you so very much!
Do you find rest areas in your area when biking or walking?
