Birthday Ride is history

Pictures and more descriptions over on the Clydesdale List.

SEPA Clyde Ride - The Great Cheesesteak Hunt, May 23, 2009

The Historian had put together a Philly Cheesesteak Hunt ride into Philadelphia on the Schuylkill River Trail. This ride presented an opportunity to me to again ride my birthday. I also had never rode the SRT all the way into Philly, so it's always nice to have a leader who actually knows where he is going. At least he fooled me. We never found any cheesesteak, but I got an easy 50 miles in. But alas I came home, quick shower in the sink, bowl of chili, water and I was back out again, for 14 more miles. 64.6 total miles in under 11 hours.

I'm going to have to check the rules again, don't we start an age minus thing at some point. eg. 65 - 1 at age 66?

Sounds like work to me.
I thought you were retired.
Congratulations.

Congrats on the birthday and our sympathies for coming up empty-handed on the hunt for the elusive Philly Cheesesteak.

I think you're on to something with the birthday minus one ride thing. Surely, there's a footnote or loop hole somewhere!
