Spent yesterday in Manhattan at K-State moving things down six flights of stairs to get Peter moved out of his dorm room and back home for the summer. We got quite a bit of yard work done so Peter and I decided to get the bikes out and take a ride on the trail.
Since I had my Trek back (with new spokes), I let Peter ride the Mendota. What a difference that bike made; normally I would have to hold back a bit, this time he made me work to keep up with him.
We came across some other wildlife to add to the list: we chased a bobcat off the trail and saw a 6' long black snake. 23 miles altogether and a wonderful time.
