As many of our friends, followers and family members know, we are all about cycleways (aka rail trails, bike paths, etc.) and shortcuts. Today we had both!
The Midland mishap where we were late getting in and were off course actually put us ahead a couple miles for today’s ride to Otter Lake.
The Bay City Loop was scenic and a nice change of pace from the route and then right outside Frankenmuth a man stopped us on the road asking a few questions about the ride and offered us an option to cut some miles while taking an even better route. Thanks Bill!
When we rolled into Frankenmuth we were a bit hangry, not with each other but the situation. We needed food, fast. We nearly settled for a cheese curd food truck but instead landed in a real restaurant where we had the BEST BIG salads. And then there was the German Chocolate Shop in the level below.
When we got to the campground, Sue asked us a few questions about where we were from and the bike trip and she said, “Today camping for cyclists is free. There is a shower, water, electric and I have a space for you near a tree so you will have plenty of shade.” Today I am calling her “Saint Sue.”
Tomorrow night will likely be our last night in Michigan and then we head to Canada for a few days.
Thanks so much for all the comments on FB, Twitter, the blog and the emails. We read every single one. 😊
Looks like we have headwinds and rain tomorrow and Saturday. It’s been a great few days of weather while it lasted.
