101 recipes. 101 miles. 101 appears to be my number for the summer.
Two weeks ago, my little sister and I woke up, glued our rears to our bike seats, and biked 101 miles on the White Pine Trail– a former railroad that runs from Cadillac to Comstock Park (just north of Grand Rapids).Our first stop–12 miles in. Awake yet?!
At 9 am, we were 30 miles into our ride–Reed City.
When we reached Big Rapids, we had to get off the trail and bike the road to avoid unpaved trail. 35 miles later, we made it to Howard City. LUNCH. 72 miles down. Many thanks to Bob for meeting us along the way to cheer and deliver food. Cedar Springs. So close. Here, our dear aunt and uncle joined us to bike the last 15 miles of our day. Having them there made the miles fly by much faster.
This adventure is one I wouldn’t trade. I got to conquer something pretty big with my little sister. I’m so proud of her for the ways she challenged herself to make it to the end of the ride. Thanks for the adventure, Abby! Looking forward to many, many more.
