This will be my second attempt at trying to link the Centennial Trail with the Mickelson Trail. Last year Marshal and I tried it at the end of July but it was way too hot (~105*F) and we cut it short. I'm hoping that trying it a month earlier will keep temperatures in the *comfortable* range. I'll write more about the upcoming trip and last year's attempt in the next few blogs.
(I always like riding the Penny when I go up to see Tony. We like to do the 'old-timer' family portraits and the last time we were there we used the Penny as a backdrop. You get the funniest looks riding down Main Street on it...Or maybe it's just that I'm so funny lookin')
Sounds like Tony's thinking about closing up shop at Deadwood Bicycles...I know he's been struggling but it's always sad to see a friend's business dry up.
