SnR UGRR Tour 2011 ~ July 7 Ride Day 22
Hilliard, to Kokoosing Campgrounds in Fredericktown, OH
This is where it starts to get easy. Well, at least for a while. We were leaving the Hilliard YMCA. It was Rich’s first day and you know what he does? He starts maintenance on the bikes! Good thing, too, because I had just about exhausted my bicycle mechanic skills. The quick inspection and work only delayed us 30-40 mins. One of the YMCA staff members made a generous impromptu donation. Not too much of a late start but people were getting antsy to get going. During the bike repair and excitement we forgot to eat breakfast. Ohh, what a rough start today was.
A few miles down the road we found a nice little corner sandwich shop where we used the space to have our own little breakfast. The owners didn’t seem to mind. The time was around 11:30. Soon I’ll be stopping to begin work.
Later in the day we passed the Columbus Zoo. A great place to visit but we cruised on by. Darn!

Despite the ignorance and stupidity of others (my opine) we all slept well but there was something worth remarking about. Just before dawn as I made my way to the restroom there was a flurry of insects that gathered around the lights. When I walked out I was amazed that they almost comprised a curtain like mist thick with flying bugs. I went back to get the camera but when I returned there was a considerably less impressive amount but I took the picture nonetheless.
