Slender Fungus Indian Summer

Sunday’s Slender Fungus riders were given the warmest weekend in over a month. A ride to Lake Shabbona was in order as the wind was coming out of the south. And lucky we did ride in that direction because there is a lot to see; wind turbines, harvest, combines, fishermen, forest preserve/future casino, hillbillies and tall winged creatures. It was a complete morning.

Lake Shabbona – we rode across the dam and checked out the spillway which slightly resembled a canyon.

There’s a tall bird in picture. An Egret?

I picked up the Salsa Casseroll a month ago and only have great things to say about it’s ride qualities. Nitto Randonneur¬† handlebars, Ostrich front and rear (not attached today) bags, Brooks B17, Thomson seatpost, Shimano Dyno Hub and a Busch and Muller headlamp.
