rollin' up north

Thanks to Derek for helping to make my vacation week awesome. Yesterday we met for a nice long ride here in the great north. Rolling out around 10:00am, we made our way from Montague up to Silver Lake Sand Dunes and back. Probably one of the most beautiful days of the year, and 59 more miles under the tires.

Our only disappointment was that the heavenly cinnamon rolls he promised me were all gone from the bakery in Silver Lake by the time we got there. "Shoulda been here earlier!" was the response from our new pal Kathy behind the counter. Great.

Derek also provided me an opportunity to watch the reluctant Master of Flat Changing swap out a bum tube around mile 31.

Also, in case you were wondering, a really good time to have trouble unclipping your shoes at a stop sign is WHEN YOU'RE TELLING A STORY ABOUT HOW YOU ONCE HAD TROUBLE UNCLIPPING YOUR SHOES AT A STOP SIGN. No worries, though...just a little dirt in the gloves...and my bruised ego.

Hope lots of you can make it for our ride next Sunday 7/15 up this way. What a great place to ride a bike.
