I figured I needed to start getting used to the road for the MS150 – what better place to start than racking up miles on the Centennial Trail. I started from the house and headed towards Willow Springs. Downhill was good, but I didn’t completely notice the tailwind. By the time I hit east bound section the wind was picking up. I did notice some cool looking single track in Willow Springs that ran right next to the paved path, I think we need that here in Lemont. So many hills here in town are begging for single track criss-crossing. I held up pretty well, the up hill climb into the wind was a hoot.
