Afternoon ride....

Mmmmmmm....
The Cedar in Waterloo....


Through a series of emails, text messages, and phone calls, Fatty and I were able to arrange for a ride this afternoon. He emailed me as I was walking out the door to go to lunch, which got him a text message from me in response about a half hour later. We made arrangements to meet at 6 but the caveat was that I had to call him before I left to make sure he was awake from his nap. I was worried that I wouldn't wake up from mine in time to call him and get to the meeting place at the prescribed time. Brother of Jackal came in to talk to his mother after he got off work and that woke me up at just the right time. I sent Fatty a text asking if he was still sleeping which got me a phone call back from him and we met out on the trail at 6, then headed south toward Hudson. When we got to Shaulis Road we took a slight detour and rolled back into the woods at the Greenbelt where he pulled two beers out of his jersey pocket. "Happy belated birthday"! Oh yeah! It went down soooooo smooth, like Guinness always does. Thanks, Buddy :) Those skeeters love you! Whoa!
We finished our beers and headed down to Hudson then took Ho Chi Minh back north toward Waterloo. We parted company at 63 and Ridgeway and I headed toward downtown then back along the Cedar on River Road and around behind Electric Park and home. Good ride! Barely a breeze, sunshine, and low 70's. What could be better?
Judy and I are going over to Littleton in the morning to work at the State TTT Championships. This will be our 3rd year doing this for the team. Always a good time and the weather looks like it will be good tomorrow.
That's about it for now.
Ride safe.
Peace out, yo!
