Ride 64 - 54.5 Miles of fun!

Ok a quickie post...I brought the new guy (date? beau? who knows...) to my Winter Group Ride. How to get rid of a guy in 5 hours? He last rode 4 months ago - and I do not think he is a road biker per se...but goes out for quick rides..maybe 30 miles. Anyhoo - we headed off to Contes in Conyers and rode with the group. We quickly split off for a C group ride...and ended up ridng 54.5 miles at an avg of 11.76Mph.
John had a few issues - and I learned perhpas not to take the date on a 55 mile ride, ya think? Maybe should start with a quick 30 miler. In any case - we did have fun - and he is going to try again nxt weekend - but I am definitley going to go about 30 miles..and if I have the energy I will loop back and practise spinning so we can both ride together.

What a ton of fun. I had so much fun - I even forgot to run home and post the ride. Ok - so dream come true..I am thinnner...I have a gorgeous bike (new Mavic race wheels..Oh yeah, I rode over my front wheel a week or so ago) and now have a guy! cyclist!

Go get em! Ride hard....

Have fun!

Miss Bee,
What you have executed is a most excellent strategy which will eliminate investing in a guy unless he is really interested! The pace was slow and you suggest he was accustomed to 30 miles rides, but I'd be a little concerned that he may be forced to watch the Super Bowl standing up. That said, best wishes for a lasting relationship.

Hahaha! I had a friend that couldn't keep a guy cause she kept spanking them on the bike. Err, I mean beating them on the bike. I'm sure if she had spanked them, they'd never leave!

Men and their egos!...Be careful, keep it fun!

Well there is nothing like a post ride massage from a pretty young lady to keep a guy coming back for more.

Miss Bumble, Say it ain't so. take it easy on the new guy. I went with a new gal yesterday and rode 8 miles. I did find out my broken wrist and elbow can handle a ride, so all is cool.

I love your posts. If I weren't too old to be your Daddy and already married for 43 years I'd come to Atlanta and propose.
Red, like the color my hair used to be.
