Bike club ride

We are supposed to lead a 25 mile ride for the bike club today. Part of the ride initially involved a canoe/kayak trip after the biking on Sugar Creek. But the creek is very low with lots of log jams and covered in duckweed. I don't think we'll be doing any kayaking today.

It's starting to feel like fall and the leaves are beginning to change color. Where did 2013 go?

Steve and I drove over to Jacksonville to check out a mtb trail I had been hearing about. It was easy to find. There were supposed to be about 4miles worth of trails. Signage was really good, easy to get around. We rode trails 2, 3, 4 and 5 but oddly there did not seem to be a trail 1. ????

Pretty easy trail, nothing very technical but I'm fine with that. It was carved out of bottom land that runs along a pretty good sized creek. I imagine this trail system is flooded most of the spring.

After our mtb ride, we checked out a new winery that opened about three weeks ago in New Berlin. This place is in the middle of cornfield-nowhere land. Really nice place though. We sat in an outdoor area. There were about 20 people there. Everyone was friendly. Steve tried a couple of their reds, I stuck with the whites.
