On Saturday, Wayne Hanno, Brian Hawkins, Dave Nelson and I were the first to ride the Bolton's 115K permanent. The route heads northeast out of Springfield to Fair Grove and then directly west on Highways CC and BB to Bolton's General Store, which is located about 6 miles east of Walnut Grove. The route between Fair Grove and Bolton's is on the TransAmerica Bicycle Trail. We had a South to SE wind that gave us a good push to Fair Grove. Highways CC and BB were continuous hills and dogs. Even with the slight head wind, we returned in about the same time as outbound.
