It’s saturday morning, 9:00 A.M. and there’s only two of us at the water tower. Merle had arrived 5 minutes earlier (can you believe it??). We waited til about ten after, then headed to Kleefeld via Ridge Road. Although it was a touch chilly, riding conditions were remarkably pleasant. I brought my “all weather” cyclocross bike and although I didn’t reveal it to Merle at the time, he really made me work, however he probably noticed I could only communicate in mono-sylabic grunts. By the way, Merle has a new (almost) top of the line ride on order, which he will reveal to us next week—-carbon, dura-ace, the works. (Move over Curtis).
Now, if you would care to give your excuses for not showing up using the comments, I’ll evaluate them on originality and creativity, and send the best ones to the Wusses Hall of Fame.
