I am not, as some suspect, a professional cyclist road racer. No, I'm a classroom teacher and I've just discovered "they" have scheduled a voluntary training day on Saturday, Sept. 16th. This is horrible. If I blow it off, single-income-with-two-in-college me will lose $285. The alternative is equally unthinkable-- miss the Pie Ride. (I've already bought 2 bags of frozen blueberries to make my own pie.)
What to do? PastorBob....where are you???
Any advice, consolation, alternatives? What would you do?
A Sunday pie ride is possible, but not really the same.
