It wasn’t an exciting ride but it was fun. Seems the weather is conspiring against us to take a very long ride, as in a 5 hour trip to Eufala Alabama for Phil’s BBQ. Yes, it’s that good that it’s worth a trip on the bike just to eat one of their sandwiches. As I have mentioned before, and I’m sure ad nauseam, the heat index has been too high for a long ride and exposure to the sun.
For now we will content ourselves with shorter jaunts. These are photos I took on an early morning ride from our place through Cairo Georgia and back home via the road through Climax and Havana. I had no idea what the photos would look like as I snapped away since I was sitting behind Doug, going down the highway at 65 mph or so.
Cairo isn’t much of a town with very little to see, so no photos there. We like to eat at local places but alas, nothing to be found in Cairo except Hardees, McDonalds, Pizza Hut and Dairy Queen. DQ wasn’t open and I doubt we could have gotten pizza even if we wanted it….ewwww…so early for that.
We settled for McDonalds because we were ravenous. All I wanted was the meal deal for an egg McMuffin. The server states, “We’re out of hash browns” and stares at me.
I asked if there was a substitution because I sure wasn’t going to pay for a meal when all I’d get was an English muffin. No. Unless I wanted French fries. Why not.
It wasn’t good but I wasn’t holding out high hopes anyway. It took care of the hunger and stomach growling.
Off we went towards home down Highway 84. Only cut off once and no danger of falling so…..that’s typical. Very pretty rural roads though once you get off 84.
Sometimes when we ride by these little country houses, so far from any grocery store or Starbucks or other houses, I wonder what it would be like to live there. It’s quieter, I’ll bet the skies are darker from lack of buildings and lights, it’s very isolated but has a certain appeal.
Buying this trike was a good decision…..we are already planning some trips and looking forward to better weather.
Ride to eat.
