Coming back from Sunday
RF and I met up at Crane Coffee and pedaled down to Bellevue town where we picked up Shim, Kev, Mike and Brady Murphy (you always have to say Brady's name like Rick James (Dave Chapelle) would say Charlie Murphy). Temps were good, wind was good, gravel was good, hills were good, then Brady Murphy (c'mon Rick James voice please) went to the front and pinned me straight to the back and off the group. Ouch! Ended up crawling home on Bellevue boulevard at about 10mph.
I'm not dead so I know I'm stronger. In fact I'm pretty sure I'm ready for more. Yep, ready and willing. So this makes four solid 3 hour plus weekend rides in a row. Outlook is looking good for the coming weekend too. Hmmm...I love being motivated, one look at F.Moser before each ride is all the inspiration I need.
This was the second ride on the Hakkalugi too. Since ride one we've gone to longer stem, aluminum bar and adjuster barrels on the canti's, and with that it is done. Post ride festivities were at the Waiting Room where 100+ tifosi gathered to take in the sights and sounds of the 1974 Giro d'Italia. Great movie made even better by great company.
...I forgive you Brady Murphy! HA! Thanks for making me stronger.
