There are wet Randos fettered by chains to a wheel in perpetual motion.
So by 0500 I was at Desmoines to start Desmoines - Blackdiamond.
Why ? Because that is what I have modified for the June Populaire
First Control at Green Valley Meats is bolted shut but the Porta-Potty is open
On Sundays they open at 1000, not a problem.
There are no magnificent views today at the Blackdiamond Bakery which is just a wee bit off course.
A cup of Coffee warms me up and two cookies to go.
Green Valley Road is Daisyland, Daisies my favorite flower.
I stop to pick a few for the Podium Girls before stopping at Valero for the Auburn Control..
They are not impressed.
"Back to work" they say
"You've had your fun"
Thanks to Alan Bell
Tomorrow I will ride "June Pop"
