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.

Bully of a good 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.

(I think I'm going to say "Bully!" every chance I get today.)
