Ride leading time again!!!


For (I think) the 4th year, I will be leading easy, fun, social rides on Monday and Tuesday mornings for "seniors" at our church and other folks who come along.

Over the 4 years, folks have gotten older, and our group is getting a bit smaller. One of my favorite ladies, now 73 and, until recently a triathlon and Bolder Boulder running competitor, had back problems and subsequent back surgery.

Her back is not doing well, and she likely will not ride this year. She used to do 30 mile rides iwth us.

However, we have added a couple of folks along the way.

Others seem to be just getting more tired or whatever, and just don't seem to get there! Two of the best riders have moved away!

Sort of sad. However, we now have 16 names of folks interested, about 6 will likely come on most rides, sometimes one or two.

That's ok because my philosophy is I am going to ride anyway, and it's nice to have company, but if I don't, I'll go anyway.
