Back from up north

Well, we made it back home from a very enjoyable trip to Door County, Wisconsin. We stayed at a small place in Epraim, 3/4 of the way to the end of the peninsula. On Saturday, we rode over to Peninsula State Park, about 16 miles of biking. On Sunday, we rode across the peninsula to Baileys Harbor and back, about 35 miles total.

Here's Baileys Harbor:


Sunday night, just after sundown, looking across Eagle Harbor, at Ephraim:


The weather was PERFECT. I can't remember a weekend with such nice weather.

Back to a week of commuting now. Fall is coming and the weather is great!

Happy riding!

I visited Door County once...but never bicycled there. I have a friend whose family has a place there, and understand if a person gets on the side roads it has some good riding. I will do that sometime. Sounds as though you enjoyed your trip...and that is good.

Sweet pics. As for weather, the fall is by far my favourite cycling season.

Yes, the side roads are great to ride because no one is on them. Hwy 42 along the west side of the peninsula is crammed full of cars and trucks, but they seem to rarely venture inland.

Sounds like fun! Like the photos, you should post more of them.

Thanks for your kind words on my blog. Yes, it's very beautiful down here. Your area can be quite nice as well, I've ridden up there a couple of times.
