I rode the Orchard Route this morning (north on 37 to Hindustan, then across 37 to Dittemore, south along Bottom Rd, back across 37 past Bloomington North to the Cascades Gold Course, and back up Old 37 to Bethel). The storms that came through last night finally took some of the Tulip tree detritus off the roads, and the weather was actually quite pleasant, a bit humid perhaps but mollified by a light breeze. Having ridden some hard hill repeats the day before, I took it pretty easy today, and just tried to enjoy getting 25 miles into my legs, albeit with the inevitable (for Bloomington) 1700 feet of climbing.
