It's the thought that counts, Siu, and yours is much appreciated.
Hey, at least you noticed

I had a wonderful dinner with Mrs S tonight and I did a nice, aggressive 17.5 miles today to get ready for it.

Guess I'll be moseying on, now...

I know, I know... but as a working stiff -and I did not take the day off- I just couldn't fit it in
At least the 17 AND A HALF (ahem) were good, aggressive, big ring miles.
Spinning the big ring at 85-95 RPM is a pretty good workout.
But... I am duly chastised

SKT is one of the few members I know that takes his pie on a ride. Just in case he can't find a cafe en route.

One of the problems some of us have is that our Birthdays do not fall on days that are sensible for riding. Just means that we do our Age ride on a day of our choosing.

SKT- what bike did you use and where are the pics? Haven't seen many of the bridge recently.

Happy belated birthday, SKT!

I missed this one....been busy doing some work around the house. Need to get everything done before the biking season gets into full swing.
