Happy Birthday Beverly.

It's not a sunny day in SW Ohio We had freezing rain this morning and winds this afternoon. The birthday ride will have to wait.

Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes. I was out but it wasn't riding. Breakfast with retiree friends and lunch with former co-workers. I had to come home to rest before heading out for the evening. Life seems to be much busier since I retired

As I was saying- Birthdays are boring at this time of year. No Pie- No birthday rides so Beverley- Set the date- preferably when the sun is possible and at a weekend and those of us that have not yet done a ride your age ride will do it all on the same day.



But Happy birthday and at our age- we need something to celebrate.

I plan on doing my birthday ride on the Bike Florida tour this year I'll be in Florida riding from March 27 to April 2. The longest day is 60 miles so I'll have to add a few miles that day or simply shave a few years off my age

In order to get in shape for this ride and the hills they're predicting for GOBA I've signed up for a 12 week workout program at the local Y. I'm sure there will be hills at the Finger Lakes ride, too. I'll either be in shape or completely unable to ride after this 12 week program

I didn't realize this was Beverly's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I'm so glad I had the opportunity to meet you and your friends at the end of your Katy Trail ride.
