Saturday Ride Report

Five riders showed up this morning at the water tower, for a somewhat windy, cold ride. After a few kilometres, we were as warm as toast. It was good to see father and son, Robert and Cameron Larocque out again. Neil, Merle and Jim joined them for breakfast at Shellenberg’s in Kleefeld, for lively conversation, mainly about kayaking, and a hearty breakfast.
Jac, it’s now been 2 weeks in a row that we haven’t seen you, so what’s up?
Ron, I see in “Bike Journal”, by the red cross beside your name, that you are injured. Hopefully you’re OK. Was it a cycling accident ????

  1. No riding is right. Couple of reasons. Father in-law passing took up last two weeks with family. In between family and work life has been extremely busy, especially when I worked thru most of long weekend. Will be in Calgary next weekend at daughters grad from college. Life has been a whirlwind lately. Plan on riding Oct 29. Til then stay safe.

  2. Jac, I’m sorry to hear about your father-in-law. Hope Audrey is doing okay. My sympathies to her and her family.

  3. Life tosses you interesting ironies in your midlife. Like having the personal fortitude and discipline to ride a bike for 6 hours straight or log 5,000 km in a season and yet somehow manage to put your knee out climbing into bed at night. So, yeah I’m on the injured list, but not for any impressive reason like crashing my bike into a barricade at 45 kph. Can’t wait for what’s next – maybe I’ll put my back out getting into the car. That should really gain the respect and awe of all you guys at the next ride!

  4. Your reason for leaping into bed, causing the aforementioned injury, now that does matter!

  5. Who was the astronaut (John Glenn????) who, after a career of huge risk including walking on the moon, dangerous re-entries into earth’s atmosphere, etc., slipped in the bathtub, severely injuring himself. Yes indeed, life does toss ironies.
