    Bully!

    Today was the bike clubs Teddy Roosevelt ride, 80 miles, three right turns and no short cuts. A beautiful day in the mid 70s and low humidity. 6000' of climbing in the Adirondacks and some spectacular descents - great scenery and company. I really like this ride - it's on my list to at least once/year.
    There were about 16 of us. No stats as my GPS battery went dead in the middle of the ride. Took the Simoncini - love classic steel on a classic ride.

    You should have gone in a straight line, cross country, surmounting all obstacles. He used to do that with his kids when he was in the White House.
