Last Sunday's ride from Chris-n-Kim Monk's place in Ada was one for the books! Check it out:
A huge turnout! Had to've been one of the biggest ever. Great to see!
A perfect route - courtesy of Coach "D-is-for-diabolical" Did. ("Perfect" as in "perfect training for Nashville" that is, not "perfect" in the "Perfect for a relaxing ride in the country" perhaps)
A fantastic, delicious, refreshing post-ride party around and in the pool! (Many many MANY thanks to the Monks for their heapin' helpin' of hospitality. (Name that TV reference and win a prize!)
Imma gonna try and list the attendance...apologies in advance if my sun-baked brain misses someone.
The first loop was Kaat, Ross, Kirsten, Did, Peter, Sarah, all 3 Scheidels, Kim, LTP, Cindy, Scott and myself.
For the 2nd loop we lost a few but added all 4 Clarks, Becky, Pea, Chris, Linda, Michelle, Nick & Paul C!
The heat was high. The hills were many. And yet - BikeFace was had and fun was too! That route was just what we need to be ready for NV and Death Valley - so no hatin' on Coach Did...he was watchin' out for y'all!
And besides - alla that work made those burgers and brats taste that much better, no?
(and that pool..............daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaang!)
