Nothing quite as fun as
getting a flat in the dark
on the way to a ride and having to change it
with cold skinned up hands. I confess I had some malice in my heart for beer bottle tossers. But, after texting my predicament to a fellow Early Bird, I got it changed and was back on my way. Upon seeing Janna, Jen and Nicole waiting for me at the iHop, I cheered back up. Better yet, shortly after we headed out, who should we see but my mom and dad coming down the road at a good clip. They turned around and rode with us back out to the Bennet corner. Gonna have to watch those two, every time I ride with them I notice they're going further and getting faster. :)
If you don't think a 5:45 am ride is for you, consider giving it a try. You might like it and the company is great!
