    Bike the Drive

    Anyone planning on being there?? Mrs. Kimbercop and I have a hotel room on the lake and will be off with the sunrise. My 1st ride of the year, its gonna hurt. I'm sure she'll drop me.
    and the road becomes my bride
    I have stripped of all but pride
    So in her I do confide
    And she keeps me satisfied
    Gives me all I need

    Didn't happen. I wore a BF jersey. We are at the north rest stop now. Love this smart phone thing. Little P is still not happy aabout waking at 4:30 but like all bike rides he is enjoying it with his usual quiet appreciation

    Did the North section at sun rise. Had a room for the night on Michigan Ave and had a nice time. Ride was short, only 15 miles or so due to my knee feeling like jelly. Home with ice on it now.
