April 19/14 – 12 riders; 76 kms; 2 Hrs 45; 426 Metres.

Okay, hello to the brave and the hardy – disciples all to a kind of madness of pedalled motion and to health and to good cheer and to good coffee and conversation and to … .

You just should have been there doesn’t say it all. Here’s to the morrow and the more the merrier and to blue sky and soft air and to toe caps and to knee warmers and tights and hand warmers — all to remind us that the best is yet to come. Don’t miss Sunday’s ride. One never regrets getting on the bicycle, does one; nor, getting off perhaps. And, we all enjoy the coffee and the good company. I do.

Okay, here is the tentative plan:

Venue: Stinsons at 10 am (it is going to be a beauty); Route to Pakenham (for sticky buns) via Stewartville, Creekside, White Lake, etc; Distance approx 75 kms; Pace a bit easier than this morning. You know if you don’t train you won’t improve. Let’s do this together.
