|This morning's riders - Mik, Elsie, C, Alice, and Kat...with Betty acting as photographer...|
This morning was Elsie's first venture out on her new ride. She did really, really, good, and only fell once.
|My understanding is that this is a "staged" photograph. Nobody actually saw Elsie tip over. (g'head, make a joke about cow tipping here...I dare ya)|
Elsie is OK. We told her she was going to fall at a stop sign and she did. I thank her for proving me right.
One of the really wonderful things about riding from Coronado (nado...we learned the soccer moms call it), is that it is flat...
Also...there are also bugs, especially at the foot of the bay. Lots of 'em. They fly in the eyes and in the mouth, unless you keep it closed, which is really hard to do when you're riding as fast as you can to get through the GD EFFIN' GNAT BATH
|...like pancake flat...can you say something like a 10 foot elevation gain...so not impressive!|
|Gnat Bath area...beware...|
Here...let me illustrate the situation...
|Yes, you are impressed by my mad illustration skillz, aren't you?|
Why is that?
Just wondering...I had some time to think about these things for several miles this morning.
It was a grand ride...lots of fun. Glorious weather (where IS that rainstorm that they've said is coming?)
We celebrated the ride with breakfast and mimosas and toasted the vets whose sacrifices gave us the day off and an opportunity to enjoy the ride.
|Happy Vet's Day AND|
|Happy BDay to Clarence!!!|
