Kenda's Dave, Paul, Janet and Rick extended one of the most coveted prizes in Ohio cycling, an invitation to ride with their select group. We left New Albany at 9:30 and wow did it feel great to ride in shirt sleeves, comfortably. Eventually, we got over to Marion when a long string of high performance sports cars passed us. Later, as we were coasting down Reynolds, we rounded a curve and there were all the cars, pulled to the side of the road. Included in the mix were TWO Lamborghinis, an Aston Martin, Ferraris, Prosche 911 Carrera and other exotic sports cars....including North America's only street legal Batmobile. We calculated the combined value of the cars was $2 million. One of the cars had overcooked a turn and slid off the road.
After eating at the Pioneer, we went back up Reynolds and the tow truck was beginning to pull the car out of the ditch. We made it back to New Albany with 64 miles and a little over 3000' of climbing. Oh, yeah, also heard for the first time this year, twice, "Gosh it's hot today!"
Here, I prepare to race against what we were told is the only street legal Batmobile in North America. Included in the set-up were two fake machine guns that emerge from beneath the hood.
Kenda Dave and Janet watch the spectacle. Dave is going to organize "Devil Dave's Sunday Ride Series" for those who can't ride on Saturday's or want another Sunday ride.
