I’m sitting at an undisclosed location eating ice cream. The middle part of our trip is over. We rode 100 miles today through an early rain and gradual clearing – with the ever present wind in our faces. Rain makes the roads greasy as the debris starts to mix with the water. I found myself braking on some normally fun hills. At one point it got so black that I stopped and turned on my rear flasher – to be seen by approaching cars.
The great highlight was the worlds largest ball of twine. Truth be told, some of it looked suspiciously like small rope.
Thanks to Jenni from MN HFH for laying out a great route.
I took a taxi to this undisclosed location, and was able to tell the driver about what was being accomplished through the Habitat 500. I think she was moved. About the taxi: would you ride 100 miles and walk to dinner?
One bad moment. A speeding SUV nearly took me out. I think I felt the mirror graze my jersey. I was badly frightened by the incident. There was no rhyme or reason: just irresponsible driving.
God thought for today: he knows we are dust
Completing a long ride could be a reason to celebrate personal achievement. I see it as a celebration of what the Lord can do with dust.
