 Ken's Sunday Ride
Today I rode the Trek to Cleveland Park and met Ken, Steve Y, John, and Luiz. I talked with Luiz for a bit as he used to work at LANL, which is where my brother retired from. We rode up the trail by way of the dog park loop and over Liberty Bridge. We were hit and miss as to who was riding with who until Ken saw some guys with Schwinn and stopped to talk to them. Steve and I went ahead, then we did my longer loop at Furman. We rode from there to the end of the trail but never saw the other guys. So we rode back to the TRee House and they weren't there either. I ordered a Cafe au Lait and Steve and I sat outside carrying on and drinking our drinks. Ken, Luiz, and John came in and Ken was fussing about us leaving him with a flat tire! We continued to carry on and John got in and carried on with us! Ken and Luiz sat out front. John needed to go, so we headed out, but Steve an I stopped at the Field and Hare to see what kind of construction is going on there. John went off and left us at that point. So Steve and I rode down the trial. Ken caught us shortly before we were back in Greenville. We rode through Linky Stone Park, Falls Park, and into Cleveland Park. At that point Steve headed for home while Ken and I went down the Hincapie Path and around to my loop up there. I left Ken at the tennis courts and went. to the zoo parking lot to get a drink and turn on my blinkies to go home. I rode up Washington and Hillside and Balsaam to East North Street, then down East Circle and Fisher to get home.
