Cambridge, ID

This is Shirley and Mildred. Shirley is an important member of the group who has, for the past seven years, converted an old railroad into a bicycle trail. It's called the Weiser River Trail, and it's pronounced "weezer." These ladies accompanied me to the Hells Canyon Days barbecue dinner, which was all you could eat for $5 -- essentially a cyclist's dream. We had a lovely time, and I learned a lot about local values: I mentioned Darwin at one point in the conversation, and Shirley cautioned me, half jokingly, against saying his name too loud. And I always imagined the Bible Belt as the bastion of conservatism!
