    Wedding Bell Blues--no rides

    My youngest son (37 yrs old) will be married tomorrow evening. Between hosting out of town guests and the rehearsal dinner last evening there will be no rides until sometime next week. Thought about sneaking out once or twice but my wife always has something for me to do. I would use the excuse that the guests would like to ride, BUT they don't ride. I am having ride withdrawal even though I know it is for a good cause.

    Any chance of an early, early morning ride?

    I'm sneaking out the door right now for about a 20 miler.

    Ingenious, why didn't I think of that, I will try it and see if it works even though I will be accused of being 'rude' to my guests, you know how that goes.

    Very early always works for me...most of our guests don't arise before 7-7:30am and I can get in 15-20 miles by then. Besides, it's not because you like riding...it's part of your fitness program.

    Congratulations to your son.

    I had a great "about 20 miler" - morning is the very best time to ride, IMHO. Started out at about 49F, got up to about 60F by the end of the ride - absolutely perfection for riding temps!!

    Tell them that your doctor has prescribed daily bicycling for your "condition."

    May not be a chance to ride- but show your intentions.

    Early early morning are when I get my kicks. Often on vacation friends and family sleep in, then wake slowly and talk about what to do for what seems like ages. So after a little of this I decided I could get up and out at 4 or 5 am and get out and do whatever I wanted, 4wheel, hike, explore, bike whatever - and then be back by 8 or 9 when they just open their eyes. Then who cares what they want to do - I'm always agreeable since I got my stuff in already!
