Safe and sound in Siren

Well we are safe and sound in Siren, Wisconsin and have finished day 1 of our bike packing adventure. 


We took off from Shell Lake just before 4 p.m. and headed west on county road B for Siren. At mile 3.5 Owen got stung by a bee or something so we stopped to check him out. Owen reacts terribly to mosquito bites so I was quite worried he'd swell up and have an allergic reaction. But he didn't, thank goodness. We biked on. 

We had about a 15 mph headwind all the way to Siren. That was a bummer but we managed. The ride went well. The scenery was beautiful. 

After 2 1/2 hours (27.8 miles) of biking we rolled into Siren. We're staying at a little motel, the Pinewood Motel, and we're having dinner right now at the Pour House. 


My foot is a little sore. Other than that, I'm feeling strong. 

Planning on 70 miles (Owen says it's all downhill) tomorrow.
