Yesterday we had a wonderful day of pedaling through rural Wisconsin for the Horribly Hilly Hundreds. Starting at Blue Mound State Park and rolling off into “the middle of nowhere.” So much fun to spend the day pushing up the hills, zooming down… but still taking time to enjoy the scenery and spend time with friends!

Great ride, great hills… some tough to pedal up, and tough to walk up for some!
Here’s our friend Joni walking up. But as long as you’re still moving forward it’s all good!

Always ready to stop at the top of a hill and wait for our friends, here’s Chris at the top…
waiting, smiling, and watching other bikers fly down the next hill.

We’ve always said that the “best” part of biking is stopping.
As we’re always ready to stop and take in the local scenery. So much fun to get away from the hustle & bustle of the City. Out into the rural farmlands of Wisconsin. Chatting with locals, admiring nature and meeting some local livestock. It’s amazing to see all of the natural beauty if you just take time to look up from your handlebars!

Stopping… posing… and enjoying time with friends on the Horribly Hilly Hundred.
Thanks to my biking pals Chris and Nancy for making it so much fun!!!

Even better when you get to play at the Finish Line photo-op knowing that the hills are behind you! Sweaty, gross and a bit salt-encrusted. Exhausted but exhilarated… and already looking forward to the next ride!!
