Day 43 – McLain State Park to Sunset Bay (Total Miles = 670.5)

Another shorter day to Sunset Bay Campground with a 16 mile bike ride.  We were feeling pretty good about our continued movement.  We pedaled through Calumet, Old Allouez, New Allouez, Ahmeek, and wherever Sunset Bay Campground is.  : )

We waved hello as we passed, and stopped to talk with a few curious bystanders.  You know though, just waving at people as we ride along is so fulfilling!  You connect with a stranger for a mini second.  They speculate about what we are doing, and we hypothesize about their lives…and for just that one moment we identify with each other.  I think about all the times we have ridden our tri bikes, or mountain bikes, and kept strangers, strangers.  We didn’t give anyone a mini second of our time…we were too busy riding in our own space and reality.  We met a retired dentist, Bruce, while he was riding in one direction, and we in the other.  We stopped to talk for about 45 minutes.  He grew up a Yooper and has lived here most of his life.  He made a comment that most people will turn their head and look in the other direction when riding by.  When they do that he will ask, “What city are you from?”
