 Jeff Ride
This morning I drove to the Swamp Rabbit Cafe then rode to Linky Stone Park to meet Jeff and Art. Jeff showed up a couple of minutes late, but Art was a no-show. I wanted to ride today to see where I am physically. Jeff is a very casual rider, so I knew that pace would not be an issue. Immediately I knew that I had a very sore upper outside thigh muscle. It hurt any time that I was pushing speed or climbing. We took off riding north up the trail and stopped at the Swamp Rabbit Cafe for a restroom break. Then we rode on up to Furman and rode around the lake. We stopped on campus as a fellow wanted to talk to Jeff about his "bent" trike. This guy was a bent rider. Then we met a woman that he knew and he wanted us to talk to her. We got away and finished circling the lake, then headed up the trail. We went to the end of the trail then turned back south. We were about 1/2 way back to Travelers Rest when I saw Art ahead.

Then we continued riding south down the trail with Art stopping at every pull-off to get off his bike and expound his cycling knowledge. We finally made it back to the cafe. I ordered a peach/tomato salad with a PB&J smoothie. We talked with some neat people there then Jeff and I rode back to Linky Stone Park where I dropped off Jeff. I rode back to the truck at the cafe.
