A Little Nippy!

I woke up this morning to 31 degrees and wondered if it would be too cold to ride today.  Luckily, it warmed up nicely by 10:00AM and so off I rode to the Outpost Restaurant.  After we ate lunch at The Outpost, seven of us rode off west and north to Converse where Charley split off and went home.  Six of us rode over west to U.S. 31 where two more split off and rode home (had a meeting to attend) .  We are down to four riders, but we rode on anyway! :)

Merle took us over to Monticello, Indiana and we rode north past Indiana Beach:

 Not very busy this time of year. It opens the first day in May, this Saturday.  Here's a link:

We left Lake Shafer and rode up north to Buffalo, Indiana.  East on Ind. 16 back to U.S. 31 and south to home.

I saw this field of Canola just west of Converse and we stopped to take a picture.  It sure is a pretty sight:

I got home about 5:00 PM and rode 187 miles.  Nice day and it warmed up to 63 degrees for most of the ride.

A special thanks to Merle for leading us.
