I’m psyching myself up for 2 big rides I intend to do in the following week. Actually, it’s one big ride, but it involves me completing the leg of a route I normally take. The entire route is this

It’s going to be killer. Roughly 30 miles along a huge leg of the prairie path, I will ride from South Aurora to Elmhurst. I figure it will take roughly 2 and a half hours to complete and boy I will not be looking forward to the ride home.

Along the way I will be stopping at my mom’s house in Wheaton to re-fuel on water and take a break (on both the way there and the way back). I may also stop at Lindsey’s house to say “What’s up!” because she lives along the path (in downtown Wheaton).

I will be attempting the ride on my new XO when it comes in this Tuesday.
