    Beltline Bike Tour May 7th

    5, 14, and 28 mile options. More info here. Anyone? I've talked some friends into the 14 mi. ride. If they flake on me, I'll go for the 28. :-)

    A friend and I got there planning on doing the 14 mi., then hopped in with the 28 moderate group at the last minute. It was really cool seeing the new and improved parks sprouting up along the Beltline. There were also many different types of riders participating, even in our group. A few too many stops for my liking, but still a fun day. About 33 total miles for me since I rode to the starting point. I also might have fallen down and scraped my knee. :-)

    Might have fallen down and scraped your knee? Hmmmm judging by the picture.... I think you more than "might have".... DOH! But hey road rash always hurts more the second or 3rd day, so you have that to look forward to.... ugggg

    @10 wheels they're not special, probably gold toe girly knee socks

    @zzOtherlandzz ha, yeah, i landed on both knees. only one got scraped but both got bruised. good times. i also had a woman just dead stop in front of me and i kept from falling by grabbing her ass. that was fun too. last night we played an hour of whirlyball so i'm not sure which pains today come from what. :-)
