Today’s ride was another destination driven ride. I had to make it to Midland to get my Covid test at least 48 hours but not more than 72 hours before I needed to cross into Canada. Two things happened along today’s ride. The first as I stopped in a town to take some heritage pictures for a dear friend and saw the church sign and just had to take a picture. The second, is when I stopped for my lunch break I was talking with Marian. When I finished up my lunch break I filled up my water bottles and rode away from the gas station leaving my wallet and phone sitting on a window ledge outside of the store. When I got to the tunnel marking the entrance to the Pere Marquette rail trail and went to take a picture I figured out that I had left my phone and wallet behind. It was probably the fastest 2 miles I’ve ridden this trip as I turned around and went back to the store and they were still sitting exactly where I left them. Nothing like a big shot of adrenaline in the middle of the day.
