 Casual Riders
I left home on the Surly to meet the Casual Riders at the cafe. It started sprinkling as soon as I was on East North Street and it continued sprinkling and lightly raining all to the cafe. Once at the cafe the rain settled down and it remained overcast for the rest of the ride. Eleven of us met and left the cafe - Wilson, Jeff, Michael, Greg, Randy Barbara and Mark, Sally, Kristen, Erica, and me. We slowly rode up the trail and I kept my customary place at the rear. I rode with Erica most of the way up the trail. We picked up Kathy at the gazebo. She and I also rode to the end while the rest stopped at the Sunoco. Riding back down the trail I rode with Erica some, Kathy some, Jeff some, and Kristen some. Once we were back at the Swamp Rabbit Cafe Kristen, Wilson, Sally, and Kathy went home. The rest of us went to White Duck Taco and we herded Jeff there by way of the orange line. I had a crispy BLT and a Bulgogi and Korean Beef Taco both on a bed of lettuce. Mark and Barb's daughter Emma joined us for lunch. We talked for a long time over lunch. After we finished Erica and I herded Jeff back to the trail, then I rode home with him. From there I rode my normal path home. Once home I discovered that Strava missed most of the ride.
