12th Long-Distance Ride Report (Preliminary)

Because of the wet roads, damp air, and borderline temperatures I started to think that I may not want to ride. Just as I’d talked myself into not riding (around 8:59:59) and had started taking off layers, I see a rider pull up. It was Ed Wheeler. I told Ed that I’d already talked myself out of riding so we were just having a conversation. He was telling me about his upcoming to trip to Spain where he and his wife are competing at the Pontevedra ITU Mulitsport World Championships. I hope I named the correct event. Anyway, shortly afterwards another rider, Simon Demby-Myers pulls up. I reluctantly told Simon about the decision that I made not to ride. We talked a few minutes more and they decided on the route and took off.

11th Long Distance Ride Report

Joe O. climbing up Truxell

7 riders came out. Everyone rode to the ride (except me (Eric)). John met us out on the route. It was a good day weather-wise but it never felt like 60+ degrees. The route was very beautiful and it was good to be out on the road. Once we got to Kent, I had my mind-set on buying a t-shirt from Franklin Square Deli and they were nice enough to give me one.

It was nice to be out.

Franklin Square Deli T-shirt

This was a much better experience than we had at Franklin Square Deli, when the a baby tried to take my bike a few years ago. 😉
