I doubt there is another group ride at which a member brings the above or something similar, to every ride. As in year's past it is.....
….Kristie Boltz. It helps to have a kitchen with 5 ovens and she uses nothing but the finest ingredients. Kristie also uses the treats to sometimes fund raise for CAF (Challenged Athletes Foundation).
This being the first, official Tuesday group ride organized by "The Cycling Club" I was curious how many would attend. Including Scott Billman in the yellow, Audi jersey, there were 30. Several new cyclists too, which is a good thing.
Don gives information about the route and other items to the group and then there are off toward Granville prior to a return.
Given 30 and some Covid concerns, 3 groups of 10 are sent out, each with cyclists of similar fitness level. The groups....
….depart. Terrible news coming out of the other prominent Tuesday group ride which originates south, in Canal Winchester. A cyclist, Shin Lisaka, was 3rd in a line that had small gaps between each cyclist due to a small climb. Shin was struck by a car, dying at the scene. I have disturbing details of the event but at the request of a witness, as well as common sense, I can not share here. Gruesome and so very sad.
