|Our first rustic road of the day|
The heat broke. I was about to break. Three weeks of 90+ degree temps with several days of 100+ left me cagey. It's not that I didn't get outside, oh no, I still got out on rides early on the days I didn't have to work and continued to commute by bike. I just didn't feel like spending any added time lingering outside lest I dry up like my garden which hasn't seen rain in almost two months.
After crossing over the Badger State Trail a few times (it runs from Madison all the way down to the Illinois border), we found ourselves back at the car, coated in dust and very thirsty. Onward to Minhas brewery! Most cyclists I know have a love for beer. I wouldn't be surprised if they ranked what's important to them in the following order: 1st Bikes, 2nd Beer, 3rd Spouse or partner. Don't ask me why...I'll just tell you the stuff tastes great after hours in the saddle. Of course, I put my husband before beer.

This next weekend, we will be skirting just North of Monroe once again when we undertake a century that our riding group threw together (thanks Michael). This, however, won't be our last time visiting the area. Cheese days is calling out to us and Minhas will be opening a distillery in August. This is all making me think that biking in Southern Wisconsin isn't all that healthy. Guess we'll just have to put on a a few more miles!
