Not the email I wanted to get today.
Yesterday morning there was a bike ride that road by our farm that is north of county 4 between Chatfield and Spring Valley. A number of these riders stopped and took a break in my yard. I thought it was a little strange that they felt so comfortable sitting on private property, my front yard. Since they were not doing any harm and my dogs were in the house I let it go, but then some started using my mailbox to rest their bikes up against. Soon more riders would stop and use my yard as a resting stop. One of these riders even urinated directly across from my driveway as my children watched him from my front window. There is a field drive 50 feet from my driveway lined with trees that would have been more appropriate. I do not know if this was the almanzo ride because I haven't seen a map of the ride, but if it is would you please remind your riders to respect private property. I really felt that it was inappropriate behavior I witnessed.
