PALM Part 5: Leslie to Perry

Note from Joe: This is part of a series of posts about the Pedal Across Lower Michigan tour. If you want to start at the beginning, you can find it here.

Today was about getting one leg up while putting the other leg down and repeating it frequently. I kept thinking about this shirt as I pedaled on telling my legs to "shut up". Our site at Leslie was next to the highway and the traffic and constant honking (I never realized how much people honk while driving) made for lighter than normal sleeping. It took me about 10 miles to warm up and get going well. But after I was fully awake the day went very well. The 42 miles went by quite quickly.

It was pretty warm and the sun was inescapable. Sunscreen was applied several times during the day. When I got to Perry I was so tired of the sun I spent the rest of they day lounging on an exercise mat in their gym reading. Tomorrow is supposed to be nearly 100 degrees, so I'm planning on starting as early as possible to beat the noon heat.





Long flat roads in farm land. All day.





Horses.





Grabbed some more soap at a little store in Webberville.





Ice cream stop.





Made it!





If you are ever in Perry I recommend visiting Tammy's Bakery and Restaurant.
