Proud of My Wife

My wife and I rode a couple of days at the BRAG Tune-up Ride in Madison, GA this past weekend. We are both over 60 and while I ride quite a bit she has never ridden beyond 14 miles at a time and only gets to ride about once a week. On Saturday we rode 45 miles and Sunday 20 miles. Not fast, but not last. Also found a fantastic local coffee shop at the end of Sunday's ride with home made scones. What a way to finish a slightly chilly ride!

Also, saw a guy who looked like BluesDawg, I introduced myself and sure enough...it was he. Good to meet you sir.
