 Sunday Ride
I rode the Surly to Cleveland Park to meet Ken's group. It was Ken, Mark, John, Keith, Steve S, Luiz, Harold Jennings (I had never met), Kimberly, her friend Nancy, and me. I left the group before they even started. I bypassed Liberty Bridge and rode through town, out Washington, across the Hampton Avenue bridge, out the Orange Line, to Old Buncombe Road. I followed OBR to the new subdivision in the old Union Bleachery parking lot. I cut through the neighborhood and took the Lakeview spur back to the trail. Ken's group caught me at the Sulphur Springs crossing and we rode together until we went on campus at Furman. I rode my loop around Furman while they rode Ken's loop. We came off campus and I chased down Luiz. He and I rode together until I made a crossing that he didn't. I rode on north and Luiz caught me somewhere after the cemetery. We rode together to the north end, then Luiz took off to chase down the main group. They were all at the TRee House along with Don Y and Lynda. I had a cafe au lait and bought an apple cinnamon muffin for Cissi. I waved to Gene, talked with Rachel, discovered that Ragan is sick, and met Molly (a new hire). We stayed outside and had a good chat with several different people. The ride back down the trail had people dropping out at various places. It ended with Mark, Ken, and I at the park and them trying to add another .05 miles and me riding to the zoo to get on Washington for my normal route home.
