Summer has been great. We toured S'West MI for a day of blueberry picking and time on the beach on Lake Michigan. We also spent a weekend at Illinois' former largest city and home to General Grant.... Galena. I also had the chance to get to the "UP" or upper peninsula of MI for a mountain bike race. I also have been fortunate to have ridden several organized bike rides in Door County, WI. In a short time it will be a music festival with my son and lots of "alternative" music.
