Lake Wedington Loop #2
Yesterday I got suckered into my first bike ride of the summer despite my aversion to exercising in non-aquatic environs in August in Arkansas. My friend and I drove out to Lake Wedington and did the 19-mile loop used in the Ozark Valley Triathlon. Though it requires driving, this route is much nicer and has less traffic than the ride to the lake from Fayetteville. As you can see on the terrain map below, the route is fairly flat, but does have a couple significant hills. While I enjoyed the ride, it left me wishing I'd invested in bike shorts and some cold Gatorade. After finishing, we cooled off with a swim in the lake.
