|The Hiawatha symbol|
|The said tee|
Not that my friend and I are any sort of super athletes. Well maybe my friend Roy is. Me, I just plod along at the same turtle's pace - but I do eventually get to where we are going (giving Roy enough time to pull out his camp stool and relax in the shade while I pump away).

Judging from the crowds we saw on the "Route of the Hiawatha" and the hundreds of bikes available for rental, most people pull their car off the I90, rent some bikes, buy some passes and when they've completed the downhill portion of the trail, they jump on a shuttlebus that takes them back to their starting point. While Roy and I are still on the trail heading to our campsite for the night. At least the tee shirt doesn't weigh much - I wouldn't want to slow my athletic friend down any more than I already do.
