Aug

    We left Oklahoma City on Friday morning and headed NASCAR style for Wisconsin, getting only to Rockford, IL before we had enough driving for one day. We left Rockford about 7:am on Saturday driving at the same NASCAR pace ( 80 to 85) heading North. We got to Stevens Point, Wisconsin at 10:30 am.  We drove around the downtown area looking at the town when we saw a lot of recumbent bikes, some looked like racing bikes. At 1:00 we went to the motel we were supposed to stay at and registered for the PAW ride.  It was there we met Doctor J.  He reminds us of a guy we ride with all the time here in Oklahoma City,  Mr. Tod,  the teacher.

How can anyone be afraid of this?

A road in the city park area.

See the recumbents and trikes ahead of Laurie. I don't think they all were the basic models, some looked made for SPEED.

A recumbent rally being held down in the city park area next to the river.

Laurie trying to figure out the map. Before it was over we missed the turn, so we went back to figure out where we got off the route.

Green and water, a preview of what was to be our environment all week.

The Wisconsin River.

Homes adorned with colorfol flowers and neatly groomed lawns.

Oh, flowers everywhere. Notice the tree made from flower pots in a tree stand.

I thought this company name was great. Have you ever heard, "Oh, You Twit"?
