The cool kids

Rode with the HC krew yesterday and met some of my blogging heroes: Lunatic, Midway, Rigtenzin, Snakebite and Velocipete along with other riders who may or may not blog. They didn't even beat me up and take my lunch money, though it appears that they (Jim) saved his animosity for his mom whom he dropped on the first hill and never looked back.

I bet he yelled at her about being late to the shop too...

It was a different sort of HC ride than I'm used to, but good. I rode with the kids later in the day and pace was similar. I'm not complaining.

If I'd known I would have tried to talk the Mrs. into coming along. She's intimidated by our normal speed demon ways.

Everybody should bring a mother/wife/daughter/mistress. Hey, a theme ride!

My wife was on her way with me and had to drop out with a mechanical -- her STI shifters weren't. Now I thought that I had fixed them, but here we go again...

Now that the studded tires have been removed, she can join us on the Crossroads. She's faster than Jim's mom, but I don't know how much faster.

Not much faster. and I'd appreciate it if the wives and mistrisses didn't ride on the same day.

Think of the dynamics on a theme ride like this! For a very split second I almost wished I had a wife!

We'll have to post a schedule or something.
