Drama, just on the other side of the truck. So much so that Kenda Janet had to walk to this side and take a seat. A cyclist, seeking shade, backed his car out to the left of the Kenda SUV to reposition between the truck and the Kenda vehicle. What should have been a quick and simple maneuver took quite a while of engine gunning and exhaust spewing into Kenda Paul's space. Some words were said, temper's flared and then the unknown cyclist said, "My car is more expensive than your car!" Wow, take that!
Large group of Westerville cyclists arrived for the 62 mile route, including Dennis on the right, outfit perfectly matching his bike. He got away with our group of around 10 and hung in there for the duration.

...after the ride, they are finally married! How about that?!?
This is one option for Saturday with multiple distance options, the longest only 70. You could always add miles and include more hills of course.
The Westerville bike club has a ride at 8:00am from the usual spot in New Albany, going through Granville during a 62 mile route. The route they will follow is: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28031639. All are welcome. There may be another ride from New Albany and if so, I will post it later.
