A sore knee, a squeaky chain, and mild sunburn were the worst parts of it. Everything else was all good.

Actually, there is an opportunity to do the complete Council Bluffs to Missouri ride next week with the Spring 2009 Crank and Camp, but schedule constraints will likely prohibit me from attending.
Bike touring is fun, and it was quite an adventure doing it on gravel through the hills and prairies of southwestern Iowa. It was also interesting to learn about the little towns we rode through, and about Shenandoah, where we stayed. It was a great way to spend time with my wife.
