Easy day on the FRT

I am finally back after a six day vacation from biking due to my very first endo of the year. I managed to beat up my shoulder pretty good from that. So I decided to take it easy for a bit. So I went for a 32.8 mile ride up the FRT today. The recent storms have left much debris and standing water on the trail, as well as running water!

Debris on the trail behind my bike where a creek normally passes UNDER the trail.

Gravel from the pit that got washed into the creek and then over the trail.

Water standing on the trail by the gravel pit.

Building in gravel pit.

At the Gail Borden Library in Elgin. I helped this guy put his giant kayak on his SUV.
In all it was a good ride today.


  1. I do believe it is the county that is responsible for that section of trail. If someone know differently please comment.
