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.

Those McDonalds parfaits are addicting.
