MISSISSIPPI RIVER RIDE DAY 5

2012-10-02

A SHORT DAY TO QUINCY IL

Cousin Dave has a good friend in Quincy whom he would like to ride with and invite to dinner. OK by us. Chuck and I split the riding, Dave meets his buddy and they ride in the nearby hills.

Dave tells the story of a professional biker from Grand Rapids who is on the Bissell bike racing team. This biker relates that the most important thing competing in a race is the PRD. This story leaves us in hysterics. What is PRD? Even I am not comfortable putting it in a public blog. Ask one of us. It is a story worthy of Rich from XC09.

I biked through Nauvoo, IL today. This is where Mormon founder Joseph Smith was captured and taken to be hung. They have a temple here and many historic sites.

Dave's friend is quite the biker and knows the local routes. He helps with a new route that avoids East St. Louis. Yes.

He also knows the finest BBQ joint in town. I didn't use to think that you could gain weight on a multi day bike trip. I am not so sure now.

Another day in Paradise. Sunny and in the 70's.

Oh Al, not even a hint on PRD? Are you confident this is something to be left to our imaginations? I will not share Carol's speculations, let alone mine.

Glad the weather is so cooperative, and the meals are going well.
