Weekend Fun

first_imgHow about this for a weekend?  Taking a bicycle to the Illinois state line and riding it to the Ohio state line?  There is a race in Indiana that takes place each July in which you can do just that.  Most of the trip follows U.S. 40 across the state.I don’t know how many people do this, but I know there are over a 1,000 riders.  The Stroebel family of Batesville have competed in this for several years now.  Two of the riders this year were Danny and Robert Stroebel.  Danny has the school record for women’s pole vault, and Robert is currently on the track team.I know this because they shared a table with us at breakfast a couple Sundays ago.  It was fun listening to them talking about this very physical sport activity.  By the way, Robert averaged over 21 miles per hour over the entire trip.  His family members were not far behind.last_img
