<<< Saturday>>>

15 riders. There were 13 riders at the start with Bob and Mary started the route early.  The morning was cloudy and cool but the sun came out later in the afternoon which made the ride a lot more pleasant.  The route had lost of turns but it was nice to cover roads that we haven’t covered before.  If I had a dollar for every roller and hill that we had to climb that day, I would have had about $4.  😉

It was a very good route and I can’t wait to do it again.

Sunday

From Bob: We had a good ride, but decided to head towards Oberlin.  We’d not been that way in a while.  We both were very tired from the 110 miles on Saturday, so we

called it done at 55 miles, and went home to mow the lawn and wash cars.

No mishaps, no mechanicals, and very little whining. And only by me.

The new bike is working well.

    By my count, Eric should have about $400. I did enjoy the new roads!
