Beverley is too young to have a birthday.

(Sounds better than too old to have yet another one)

Happy birthday

Thanks everyone

There was no birthday ride except for the few miles on the bike at the Y....too cold here It needs to get above freezing and stay there for a couple days to let the snow and ice melt off the trails and country roads.

I'm late too ... but hope you have a great year!

I'm sitting here just back from my oldest daughter's 30th birthday, trying to deal with the fact that one of my children is now 30.

Beverly,

Happy BD. Sorry I'm late.

I heard that the penalty for not riding on your birthday is that you have a choice of:

A. riding 2X your age some day later this year, or
B. eating 4X your age in calories (pie) at one sitting

Your choice!
