i checked in on the "independence ride" challenge and saw only one entry, so i decided to get a quick 10 in before work. i rode south to sixth street and then zigzagged my way to the lake. i then climbed up and over cook hill and part way up gnad hill before turning around and retracing my "steps" back home.
there's one difference between riding here and argonia that i hadn't thought about until this morning. there are six stop signs in the first mile and a half of this route. in argonia there was one stop sign a quarter mile north of my house and that was it. glad they're changing the laws in kansas to allow rolling cautiously through those ugly red octogons!
