Me with grandson, ready for bike ride. Note he is not rudely gesturing, not only is it not that finger, he's pushing up his sunglasses. What a week! Today was cool and partly cloudy, a rare day in summer in Iowa, a bit windy, but not too windy for some two-...

Morning ride to MMU campus--took longer trail route by Cedar Lake. Milkweed starting to bloom, above, and native tiger Lily, too, below. I rode about 39 miles today—5 in the morning going to the gym and climbing the Bowman Woods Hill, 6 taking the longer tr...

In Which the Weekend Features RAGBRAI Prep and Scouting
Antique Shop across the street from the Skinny Dip ice cream shop. Lansing Iowa—boy you are far away. You’re not near anything in Iowa—you’re about as far north and east as it is possible to be and still be in Iowa. And you’re home to just under 1,000 souls...

In Which a Fruit Angel Appears at a Library
Crossing Lake Macbride on way to North Liberty on Bookworms on Bikes ride. I forgot to look at my computer for a final tally, but I believe the Bookworms on Bikes ride added up to the low 50s somewhere—52 to 54 miles, all told. It was a fine day, hot in the...

In Which I Ride a Sunset Ride
Morning sky on Monday, May 22. Interesting clouds. My sister uses an app called “Map my Ride,” so I know on one day recently, she biked for more than 30 miles. For me, the spring semester finally ended Tuesday, and Wednesday I was on campus to meet a prospe...
