Although an invitation was not extended to me by Kenda Janet, organizer of the Sunday recovery ride, I was tipped off by someone about the start and crashed her ride. Jan didn't seem to mind too much so she, Franz, Recumbent Dude Nathan, Kenda Dave, Kenda Rick, Corvair, Flyin Tuna and I started out of New Albany at 10:00am into brilliant sunshine and 46 degrees. We took the northern route into Granville, arriving with 25 miles, ate and chatted at the coffee house on River Road, returned via the southern route and finished with 49 miles, more than enough for me after yesterday's 85 mile March Death March. Then I began thinking I had not burned enough calories so went trail running.
I'm thinking about doing the Blue Jay route a couple of times this week to expedite my recovery from a winter of overeating and over couch sitting. I guess I should not have been surprised when Grand Poohbah asked on Saturday if I had really ridden the route last week and then on Sunday, Cindy told me Kenda Janet had asked the same! What the..... Is my credibility so shot that even a detailed ride report is not to be believed? Don't answer that please.
