Lake Michigan Bike Ride – Day 1 Waukegan to Belgium,Wi.

Gorgeous Day To Be On A Bike !!!!

Distance 98 miles

Time 7:03 hours

Avg. 13.9 mph

Feet of climb 1818′

  It is great to be on the actual ride and not just practice. I started riding at 8:10am with a temperature of 55° and a 6 mile an hour wind out of the north east. It was upsetting to see the wind out of the north east again with the forecast for warmer winds out of the west. By noon the winds were out of the west and the temperature warmed to the upper 60’s. The sun was out and everything looked so beautiful.

Near the end of the day there was a 6 mph tailwind which help me finish off the long but pretty 98 mile ride. Tomorrow should be a nice day to ride to Greenbay. 

  
Most of today’s ride was on various rails to trails bike paths.
