Wednesday SS Ride

just before all hell broke loose
Another ride on my single speed.  My goal was to get to the old Vermillion Point life saving station but I fell short due to a really nasty storm that rolled in off the lake.  It came fast and unleashed massive amounts of fury directly on me.  I wasn't afraid for my life, but afraid enough to get my bike up to 20 MPH on flat ground as I was running from the storm.

When the rain came it was a total whiteout.  I couldn't see very well, but just kept riding.  There is something about being caught in the rain that just makes you feel alive.  It didn't bother me a bit.  Oh, and I ran over a snake in the road.

It was a pretty solid five days in the UP as the weather was spot on, the big lake uncharacteristically warm and almost no bugs to speak of. 

Later that day #1 and I went for a 20 mile quad ride.  Good times.

is it legal to ride on the beach?
