 Bill, Tippy, And the SRT
This morning I picked up Bill and we rode his neighborhood. Bill really wanted to pass 5 miles today, so we stayed out and did our mileage. Bill is a little discouraged by his muscles starting to atrophy. But he rode fairly well.

Then I drove to Cleveland Park and headed up the trail. At the F-86 I ran into a couple walking a dog that looked like Tippy. Thus dog didnít have the white tips on his paws and the dark on his tongue was striped while Tippyís was a spot. But other than that Matty was a dead ringer for Tippy. The ride north was pretty unremarkable. I turned around across from the creperie. Just south of Travelers Rest a boy was selling lemonade, so I stopped for a drink. He and his father were selling lemonade to support TR Makes - a group that helps kids in Travelers Rest. After downing my lemonade I headed on down the trail. There was a couple that was stopped just north of the cafe that were struggling with a bike problem. I stopped to see what was going on but he figured it out while I was chatting with them. From there I rode on down the trail and back to the truck.
