Let me jump on the bandwagon with all of the other local blogs and put in a plug for this ride. I had to beg off because of a soccer match that day, but boy does it look right up my alley: a laid back ride with a laid back crew on some back country roads. It would be great to make this “an event” that would promote the whole country biking mindset for this region. I hope you can make it.. it would have been a perfect shakedown cruise for the LHT. Since they’re planning on scheduling more, I know I’ll be keeping an eye out and clearing my calendar.
Also, thanks to James, I ordered a $9 Pencam yesterday. I want something smaller and way cheaper than Red’s Canon to snap “captures” while on the bike.
I’m feeling a little better this morning, mentally. Things are so busy this weekend that I’m just going to put the LHT out of my mind. Today is both soccer and baseball, in-laws, finish mowing the lawn, I want to spread this grubb killer powder at some point (the little suckers are attracting moles and skunks – they must be a real delicacy), clean the house, clean up the Marin, etc… Tomorrow I want to go watch a soccer match that my friend is coaching and lend him moral support. I’ll give the shop a call on Monday to see how they’re making due.
