River Ride

Happy New Years to everyone:

Anyone up for a Wapsi River Ride? With the deep cold temps for the last three weeks the ice is thick. Some reports out on the lake are 9” thick. Usually we don’t get out till Super Bowl Sunday in Feb. The plan is to meet at my place Sunday the 7th at 2073 Three Elms Park Rd. in Independence, ready to ride by 10:00. We’ll go south, down river with stops at Wolfe’s in Quasqueton, Troy Mills, fuel and food, and hopefully Central City which is about 40 miles. The temps for Sunday are going to be around 28 degrees so it should feel like springJ. This southern section is wider and a beautiful section to run seeing the deer and eagles souring overhead. Please let me know if you are interested in going.
