Katy Trail Social, July 12 & 13.

Just a refresher for those who plan ahead. Uh - is anybody planning ahead to ride with me?
My greatest fear is all of my kids standing around my coffin and talking about "how sensible" dad was.

Too far away for my plan-ahead. I'll be shuffling my calendar around the end of May... As usual, it would be the Saturday ride for me.

I'm finally getting a chance to blow the cobwebs out of my unused cycling muscles. Boy has this enforced cycling drought done a number on my fitness level! I'm also peeved that, as soon as the sun rose early enough for me to do my morning ride, Spring Forward took it all away again!

Yep. I do have a couple of issues to work out. The wife and I are attending a concert at the nearby Verizon Wireless Amphitheater on Friday night. We plan on spending the night at a hotel afterwards. The main issue is what will my wife do while I'm riding. She could shop in old St. Charles but that could put a hurtin on the old credit card. Another option is for her to visit our grandson over in Chesterfield. However Chesterfield has a lot of shopping malls..... Looks like this is going to be an expensive bike ride for me!

I have it on my calendar, but I'm travelling quite a bit for work again, so can't commit just yet. If there's any way I can make it, I will.
