Birthday Ride

I turned 61 today so I went for a nice 77 mile ride to celebrate. Very hot and humid today, but I really enjoyed myself. No hurry to get anywhere, just enjoyed the sights and the sounds. I was getting a little concerned the last few miles because the clouds were piling up and I could hear thunder to the north, but the storm never overtook me. This evening my wife is taking me to dinner and I am probably going to eat too much. Ah the life!

Happy birthday, and congrats on the nice ride I like those days where I don't have to be in a hurry to get anywhere

Happy belated Birthday! The best rides are the ones with no set time/destination :-)

You didn't go in your birthday suit did you? I imagine that would be awkward.

Congrats and happy birthday.

Ah no, no birthday suit. My banged up old legs are already more than people want to see. Thanks.
