About two hours later we rode back to the 200, turned left at the lights and struggled up the dry hot 287 all the way to Augusta. When we arrived we were carbohydrate-starved and quite capable of eating every bit of pasta, bread and potato the town had. We rode our usual sortie, up one side of the street and back down the other. Most of the town seemed to be at a place called Western Bar. Sweaty and smelly, we pulled up and asked what was happening. It turned out to be the bar's fifth birthday and for a two dollar donation we could eat as much as we wanted. Oh my goodness did we literally pig out, they had a hog on a spit cooking away right on the street. First I went for the potatoes, fries and crisps, then I started on as much meat as I could find and finished off the meal with plates full of home-made cookies. It was like manna from heaven right there on the Lewis & Clark cycle trail. It was the first time I had felt full for quite some time.
