The bicycle came out of hibernation
The bicycle came out of hibernation today. Yesterday it was 75 degrees here in Little Rock and this afternoon it was 65. Since I care for my folks on Saturdays I can really only get rides in on Sundays. Today was "Launch Sunday" at New Life Church (NLC) and we have so many different groups you can join. I signed up for the NLC bike club. They actually had a mixer ride this afternoon and I jumped in and rode. Not to pat myself on the back but I stayed with the front group even as we rolled at 21mph. Not a bad comeback ride for someone who has been off since what, July? I really had a blast! It reminded me of what the group I used to ride with was when it started getting big. But those guys all got really really fast and into racing. I admire them and they all have done outstanding. Sorry, I didn't take any photos. I'll try to do better.
