Alas, the tale was not meant to be. I had logistical issues which arose with a vehicle in the shop and 4 grandkids needing to be a 2 different schools for their basketball games on Saturday morning. Family definitely trumps cycling so I didn't partake in the ride since we couldn't arrange the transportation of everyone to their assigned locations in a timely manner if I was dropped off for the ride, or I took one of the vehicles.
I am a little sad that I didn't ride, but it is more than offset by having watched the grandkids play their respective games. The 2 youngest are on teams in the same division and actually played each other so we had one win and one lose. The second oldest played well, but his team lost. The oldest played well as well and his team won! So we were 2 for 4 on the day.
Here are some pictures.
Would I have liked to ride? Sure I would, but in the end I'm actually glad I didn't as I would have missed the fun.
Get on your bikes and ride!
