    Once more I organize and lead a 50 - err - 70+ ride

    A couple of weeks ago in our church Sunday School class - Perspectives - it came out that several of us were bicycle riders.

    As is my way, once again I said, "Hey, let's all have a ride."

    And, as is the way of the world, a whole bunch of them could not join in today's ride. But, 5 of us got together, including my wife, and journeyed up the trail for 5 miles (we are not talking TdF riders here), stopped at McD's on the way back for a fruit and yogurt parfait (before you jump on the McD's bit, please recognize that this is a low calorie treat - non-fat yogurt, strawberries and blueberries - 140 calories) and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

    And, 5 miles was perfect, as 2 people had hit their limit.

    All of this to say - one can (and should) enjoy bicycle riding in all sorts of formats, speeds, distances and groupings.

    You did another good deed, maybe some will return to bike some more.

    Those McDonalds parfaits are addicting.
