Well, the finale was performed yesterday morning by Jim, Alex and Ron. A brisk pace to Richer was set in balmy late October weather. We enjoyed calm wind conditions with just slightly moist pavement. Our favorite Country Corner waitress (and now great-with-child…will she name it “Jac” ?) served up a good helping of bannock and eggs with the usual bottomless cup of coffee. Jim and I had a delightful time getting to know a bit more about Alex and his relatives (did you know he grew up right near the Berlin Wall and was 5 years old when it came down?). Alex informed us that he’s going to Germany for the winter and plans to commute 50K daily riding his fixie (he also mentioned that they are illegal in Germany – will he get busted?). I guess he’ll be kicking our butts next spring….
So the season ended , just like it began. Riding, eating, telling stories and riding some more. Thanks guys, it’s been a slice.
P.S. What’s your favourite memory from this season? Post it as a comment.
