If you like what I'm doing, and you want to help, you can always buy me a Coffee....
Just a heads up for the locals, glacial drumlin trail is still closed, but passable. If you don't mind walking. Trust me, dozens of other cyclists have already done that. Hopefully, they'll be done soon and we can get back to normal riding. Alternatively, grab your gravel bike and make an adventure out of it. Do what you want, it's still a free country.

This is a new one to me. I came out for a quick ride, only to find my tubeless valve core was somehow affixed to the protective cap. I'm guessing that somehow sealant managed to somehow work it's way between the valve core and the cap, although to be honest I'm at a loss as to how.
That said, I'm storing the bike with the valves at the 9:00 position, on the somehow off chance that the valves were pointed straight down and somehow managed to get sealant to leak off the top of the tire into it. Around this place, anything is possible.
I did get my ride in. I had to cannibalize a core from an old valve set I have here. People ask me why I'm a pack rat, this is why!

And the other way out of town is also blocked. And has been for the past month. Who is the absolute idiot who decided all of the trails should be closed all at once?
Somebody wants to ask me if Waukesha is a bike friendly town. No. No it is not. I would venture to say that Waukesha, in fact all of Wisconsin, it's pretty bike unfriendly.

The #glacialdrumlintrail is still closed. The official detour wants me to go on a main highway with no shoulder and cars zipping inches from riders.
I know this, because I've been hit twice on that road. Both times by a 4x4, both times by a mirror. So thank you to whoever designed this! If your goal was to get more cyclists killed, you succeeded.

Done. Getting SAGged back to Green Bay. Too much is going wrong. I'll deconstruct it later.

It's takien a couple of hours, but here she is. The bike is now ready for #rideacrosswisconsin. I brought a small suitcase with me, most of it was taken up with the frame bags. Also, had to assemble the lights (one broken transit, thankfully I found another one that will work.), pack the bags, and go. I'm handling this is a self-supported ride, because I know how slow people don't get anything at rest stops.
The only things left for me to do tonight are clean up, get my wristband back on which popped off because it was too small, and sleep.
@rockgeist frame & top tube bags to hold most of my existence.
@bedrockbags handlebar bag for rain gear
@ortlieb_waterproof seat tool bag
@safetypizza to pizza me safely
@sewardstreetstudios made all the decals on the pizza, and the bike. Hyper reflective! Much visible!
@velocityusa wheels and hubs
@gopro on the bars and on the stick
@camelbak water bottles
@outdoortech speaker and power bank
@garmin light and GPS
@kustomcaps bar ends and assistance to get to 11.
That should cover everything.

Made it here in one piece. got to the hotel to check in, and lay everything out to make sure I haven't forgotten anything. Thankfully, I haven't. Or if I have I'm not going to miss it.
Tomorrow morning's the ride, and I have so much to do before that. Including fix what they messed up on my bike in transport. Not a happy camper, but will make the best of it.
