Today!

59 years old today! Here's hoping the rain holds off and tomorrow's OHR can be my age ride!

Well, a very Happy Birthday to you Road Fan! Hope the weather does hold out for your ride. We need a birthday ride and PIE choice report when you finish. BTW,what do you want to be when you grow up? Now that you are 59 you need to be getting ready to plan the life ahead of you

Didn't know you were just a kid, but Happy Birthday in any case! BTW, the latest forecast shows a thunderstorm, but not until 4PM or so. I'm starting the 65-mile route at 8AM, so even taking our time we should be back home in Rochester by then. I'm riding with a local group of (much younger) friends, but I'll give you a shout if I think I see you.
