I told my wife about the 9/18 Pie ride and she said it sounded good, where was the ride and who was going. I'm not sure she understood my reply.
In any event, today we went over to the beach and road our tandem up A1A along the coast. We got a bit of a late start, so it was getting a bit warm. We rode 11 miles up to Atlantic Ave in Delrey Beach and stopped for refreshments (banana, granola bar, and drinks.)
After a suitable rest, we headed back down to Hillsboro Blvd in Deerfield Beach.
Riding was comfortable but stopping for the red lights was HOT. It was good to get going again.
We got back to the car, and headed back home. We didn't have pie on this run. We have 3/4 of an apple pie at home. We'll complete the practice by each having a nice big piece after dinner.
We will be doing a similar ride on the tandem, but 22 mi longer next week as part of a 9/11 Memorial ride. We may come back on 9/18 for the actual pie ride, or pick another spot on the coast. Weather will dictate.
