Foto Friday - The Tour

No...not the one in France pffffft... I'm talkin' 'bout the one that took place yesterday at Lake Tahoe. the one in which fellow heffers, Mik and Betty, rode around the lake. 72 miles. 6 hours 11 minutes riding time. 7 hours 45 minutes total...


Mik and Betty at the end of the ride by the Fanny Bridge. The sign says Tour de Tahoe 2009*. Arrivee!! Look Momma even laminated the sign!**

But of ride Guinness...also provided by Momma who met them with beers at the end. It was the first thing Mik told me about when I talked to her after the ride... priorities, of course, priorities!)

I'm so proud of them both...and can't wait for their return to SoCal so that I can hear all the stories as the various text message updates I received throughout the morning, although entertaining, don't do the ride justice. Of that, I'm sure.

Thanks to Marlene at Mission to a(nother) marathon, for hosting NikeMom's Foto Friday. What a great name for a blog!

Ride on girls! I love ya!
*Yes, I know there is also an organized event called the Tour de Tahoe in September. We were lookin' at doing that one...we'll see what Betty and Mik say about that now that they've ridden the lake.

**Thanks to Momma for taking and sending the pix.


  1. Hooray! The ride is worth the Guinness. It makes it taste just THAT much better! Woohoo!

    I'll be there tomorrow, but I'm probably not going to run much. I'm sooooo sore from this week's workouts. My body is telling me to "stop already!"

  2. I'm jealous a Guinness can taste that much better!

    Great job!

  3. Wooo that's a lot of riding!

  4. Sounds like an incredible ride!! Congrats to them, and are you gonna join them next year? :)

    I have been considering the Tour of Tahoe or whatever it is called too. It is supposed to be a great ride.

  7. Yeehaw! Tell them congratulations. ;)

  8. Wow, that's a whole lotta miles!

  9. 72 freakin' miles on bikes?!? My @$$ hurts just reading that!

    Of course, it hurts mostly due to an unrelated trauma.

    No, I don't want to talk about it.

    Forget i brought it up.

    Congrats to Mik and Betty.
