Party Day

with 4 comments

It’s the big day! I’m gone biking by the time you read this, with Paul and three friends, Dan, Bill, and Brad, on our way from Minneapolis to Wintervale for the gala celebration of Paul’s and my 60th birthdays.

We’ll have 60 miles under our belts and be ready to party before guests start to arrive, if all goes as planned. The only thing I forgot to bring with me to Paul’s house yesterday was my water bottles. Luckily, they had a couple I could borrow.

We are hoping to ride early to beat the expected heat. Happy 60th to us!

    • Thank you, Brenda! It was a pretty amazing day. It was too hot to be riding such a long distance, but we did it anyway. Pretty much kicked my butt, partly because our route, and one wrong turn by me, led to extending the miles up to 70! Oops. The food and friendship of the evening proved to be an excellent antidote for the near-bonk experience of the cycling. 🙂
