 Windy Ride
This is my first ride in a while and I really felt it. I rode the Surly to Cleveland Park then cut across town and took the Hampton Avenue Bridge to the Orange Line, then followed it out Old Buncombe Road to Union Bleachery. I took the Lakeview Extension back to the trail and rode north. I took my long loop around Furman then rode to the north end of the trail. I turned back and saw Don, Lynda, and Piri riding north. I rode back to the TRee House and ordered a decaf au lait with a blackberry bacon cheese sandwich. When I went back outside Ken and Mark had just pulled in. Ken wanted to ride to the north end but I told them that Don and Lynda were about 10 minutes from being back. Rachel was there and fairly talkative. Gene and Kristen were there and Kristen said that she was feeling better. Her feeling poorly is always a worry with her condition. Then Don, Lynda, and Piri pulled in and we had a gab-fest. Don is in the middle of having tooth implants and he looks miserable. After we broke up Ken and Mark headed north while the rest of us headed south. Don, Lynda, and Piri turned off at their spot by the creek close to Ally Cat's. I rode the rest of the way back alone.
