Michael looks on as George explains to John his most recent ride exploits. Twenty of us gathered for the ride as we waited for our ride leader Gus Cook to arrive but soon Peggy Cook pulled in to advise us Gus was in MO and we would have to fend for ourselves.
Tym Tyler and the H&H guys arrived followed by some discussion about the appropriate speed for the ride. Apparently last Tuesday's average speed was over 22 so we agreed to keep it friendly and headed out led by....
...who exited the roundabout too early, requiring that we cut through a parking lot to get back on route. That was pretty funny. We headed east, got into and out of Alexandria and paused at....
...Battee to briefly regroup. George appears shocked that he was not the last to arrive and peers into the sun to see who could possibly have been behind him. George is channeling Dirty Dan and now also wearing all black.
Just another pause image as we waited and finally gave up on one guy who did not appear, Greg. I later saw him on 161 headed back to New Albany as I was departing so he made it back ok.
What the heck, we paused at Stone Quarry too as Jeff S, George and me brought up the rear. Once resumed, we made it back to the parking lot with a 20.2 avg and 38 miles. Good time and a good evening for a bike ride. As I was changing, someone alerted me to a family of.....
...rabbits frolicking next to my car. Must have a nest under the platform of the light.
