Ride 24 - Return to Covington - Includes Pics

OK Gang – Ride 24 – Joined a group I met on my ride last week – and met them in Covington for a 42 mile ride. I went with the “slower” group and we had a blast- This time I have pictures…. They were a great bunch – and I felt comfortable enough to even stop and take pictures. I never thought I would be back in Covington again after last Saturday’s ride – but it was such a beautiful day and a great ride!

41.47 miles, 3:11:08 (approx 13 min mile on avg …. Rolling hills..great weather!)

Spectators along the way:




And here's a picture of the girls - I am on the left:


Here's all of us on the ride:

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.
