Mark V, before the start of the ride, is in his van, naked, changing into cycling clothes. Unfortunately, I was too slow to grab my camera and I missed Cindy with her face pressed against the glass, watching.
Cool sunny weather brought them out in droves to New Albany. Recently, a reader of this blog said, "Yeah but only strong riders show up for those rides" but these COP sponsored rides from New Albany and Canal Winchester attract A. B and C rated riders so there is a speed for anyone reading this (including you Belinda).
Who else but Retro George, my arch nemisis but a really good guy. Yes, he looks old and he probably does not know how old he is but he's at least 60 and incredibly strong. He can ride for a very long time on flat to rolling terrain at 25+mph but gearing creates a small problem on the steep hills.
Another who else, Group Killer, meditating and mentally preparing to destroy us. A little over a year ago he weighed 271 and now is at 178 and unhappy that he is not 125. In the 14 months he lost close to 100 pounds I lost, well, 0 pounds. Jamie decided to pursue some goofy 1/2 marathon goals which will deprive him of cycling time so instead of destroying us, he will merely be able to hurt us a lot.
