First there was Pete. Had a Cr*p bike and he was told to get a decent one. As soon as he got a used Giant Boulder at a price he could afford-he joined us on our "Gentle" 25 mile Sunday rides. Then Nathan but he didn't have a bike. Borrowed one of mine and then got his own . Then Mick from across the road and once again no bike. He got enthused by seeing the unfit Pete get transformed into a Less unfit Pete and he has borrowed another of my bikes. Then this afternoon another of my friends announced he has got a bike. No idea what but wants to join our Sunday morning ride.
So tomorrow morning I have 3 novices to shepherd on a 25 mile road ride that must not have a hill- must not be too fast and must operate a "No Drop" Policy. Nathan isn't coming unless his Knee stops oozing Fluid. He had an op on it a couple of weeks ago and it went "Funny"
Hope I can keep up with them.
