Salad Ride Report: before it happens=Pass it on!

Salad Ride Report: Before it Happened…The Dream I’m having right now…

I showed up right on time. I decided to drag out the old Phonak kit, so I was looking sharp and intimidating. Henry was already at the bridge but he was on his new bike with all his kids (even the neighbors kids!) mounted on his bike. It was really cool! He had little tables that folded down that you could put cereal bowels on with juice. They we’re preoccupied eating lucky charms and acted as if I wasn’t even there. I thought it was odd that Henry was drinking coffee out of a large beer stein?


He commented that He had been up all night drafting his plans for his new proposed San Bruno Velo-dome and that he was “on his 4th cup. “ I thought to myself “we’re gonna have a fast ride today!”

Mateo was there (Pelikan) with his fishing gear. I was like “WTF Mateo” and he was all like, “ we’re going out fishing for oysters when we get to Tomales! Do you want to come?” “Mateo! You can just walk out and pick them off the vines…why fishing gear?” I said with consternation. “ Too easy! Too easy!” he said with a dead serious tone. “That’s cool Bro, they give me hives.”

Everyone else was there and it was time to move. We hit the bridge and quickly hopped in a really fast paceline behind some really fast moving “Blazing Saddles” bikes. I was behind a particularly large woman from “Toga” in a moo moo the size of a Big Top tent and I could not for the life of me see past her!

I was beginning to think I had picked up the wrong prescription at Walgreen’s last night. I must check when I get back to… “Where?”

It was then, as we began drifting up Mt. Tamasuvious, amongst millions of butterflies… “Wait!” I’ve been here before! At that moment my friend Curtis flew down past me on a very strange bike, screaming “Little Ponies are descending! Run away!”

I pulled of the road as Curtis and the butterflies sailed by at a high rate of speed! Suddenly I was inundated by “Pink Ponies” They were speaking but I could not understand?

Sure enough as I hid behind a large redwood covered in cowering elves, I saw this!



Thankfully I awoke! I need some coffee…
THE END
