Cold weather ninja outfit needed for an early start in freezing temps this morning. I had to get an early start in order to complete the 61 miles in time to make the lunch buffet at The Everest Cafe, a favorite Tibetan restaurant, for a birthday feast with my girls. Now waiting for food to settle enough to make room for D's Cheese cake. But wait! This whole ride you age thing seems backwards - every year you have to ride farther and are less capable. Perhaps I should ride one mile LESS each year. Of course that would make it harder to brag about it. Thanks to all my friends who wished me a happy birthday over on Facebook today.
