 Swamp Rabbit Casual Riders
I rode from home on the Surly and headed down to Cleveland Park. I rode through Cleveland Park and Falls Park to the Swamp Rabbit Cafe to meet the SRCR. Nine of us left the cafe - Joe, Wilson, Greg, Pam, Richard, Jeff, Erica, Sally, and me. We rode up the trail with me trailing the group. Pam was struggling to keep the pace, but we rode on. Sally asked me where a restroom was, so once we were in TR I took her to the TReeHouse for a potty break. Once we came out I figured the group had left us, so we hustled up the trail to catch them. When we arrived at the Sunoco, they weren't there. So we waited for them. Once there, Pam, Richard, and Greg were gone. Sally, Erica, Jeff, and I rode to the north end. Then we all headed back down the trail. Going down the trail we saw Greg and randy riding north. Once at the cafe, Wilson and Sally left for home, while Joe, Jeff, Erica, and I headed for town. Jeff dropped his trike at his apartment, while the rest of us went to Barley's. We ordered then Jeff came in and we all ordered. Jeff was getting very antsy about eating indoors. Then a live band started playing and was so loud that we went outside to eat. I had a spinach salad and a bowl of chili. We chatted for a good while out there. Then Jeff walked home while the three of us rode back to the cafe. Joe left us to go to Mt Calvary's parking lot while Erica and I went to the cafe lot. While there I saw Sam B with the three younger boys and talked to hime for a bit. I told him to say Hello to Erin and asked about their trip to Alaska. The little boys had a lot of questions about my bike. From there I rode home by way of Hampton Station and by the Peace Center.
