Lately, I haven't been able to come up with any clever or catchy titles for my posts (as this latest effort demonstrates), so I haven't been posting as much as I'd like ( I know, cheesy excuse, uh?).However, I felt the writing itch today, so I had to scratch it. This being Saturday, I did what I usually do, which is riding my bike. I've been going with the group from the bike shop where I bought my bike, but today I went with another group (actually, the 'rivals' of my bike shop group) because they did a ride up in the mountains right by my house. There were some other people from my usual group, cyclists are a weird bunch, some of them go where the most pain is being inflicted, and I'm one of them. Anyway, the ride was not too long for me, about 20+ miles, but it was all uphill with a gain in altitude of about 4,000 feet. The group was made up of mostly guys, there was just another lady besides me and the gal driving the SAG vehicle (support and gear).
It was a very nice ride, the weather was nice, not too hot nor too cold,but mostly not windy, which I hate with a purple passion. Some of the guys were younger and some older than me, but there's always
a camaraderie that develops when people suffer together, so we all became good friends quickly. After 2.5 not so fun hours we reached the top and finally rode downhill 3 miles to get to town. My husband met me up there cause we all went out to lunch. It was fun and tiring, but I plan on doing more of these
because apparently I have quite a few issues, one of which is choosing really lousy post titles!
