New riding partners

Mrs. Grouch and I are planning to ride with a new couple of recumbent riders tomorrow morning. He rides a dual 650c high racer and she has a tadpole trike. Mrs. Grouch and I will be riding our Screamer tandem. We're a little bit nervous because the last time we attempted to ride this particular route was the Mother's Day Massacre outing when we fell and I rang my bell. I told Mrs. Grouch that the only way to get over the fear was to get back on the horse.

Wish us luck!

No bell-ringing allowed on Labor Day!
Unless they are little ding-ding bells like my wife and I each have on our Screamer. On your left!

Good luck and hope you manage to keep the other riders as friends afterwards. Smoking them up every hill is a good way to make enemies
