72 Mile Birthday Ride

My wife turned 39 today, so we decided to ride to the end of New Jersey, so we left early, had a nice breakfast and headed south. All said and done, we rode 72 miles, both personal bests for both of us. Happy Birthday to my wife, and well, being my birthday is Friday and I turn 40, I keep kicking the 30's ass


Some Pictures attached, one house still flooded with all the rain we have received

Whoot to us

Looks like a nice ride, although I had a moment of confusion about the contradictions present in the picture of your wife: flatbar with aerobars on it, and the discovery team shorts with the walking shoes

Happy b-day to you both

Looks like a pleasant day for a ride. I hope the water goes away for those folks soon.

She likes the areobars, I know I know, it doesn't seem right, but whatever she likes As for the walking shoes if you look at my pic I am wearing sneakers myself, lol.

We are putting two road bikes on layway tomorrow at the LBS, for now, the areobars make it comfy for her.
