Rides Start Soon. Want To Be A Part Of It?

I'll get to the weekly rides at the end of this post, so please read it (I'll keep it quick) and you can learn more re: The weekly rides

Hey, all! The weekend went way too fast. I can't believe how quick it went. I feel as though I just wrote an entry on Thursday, and now the weekend is over. Ugh. I need a vacation from my life in general. Totally didn't make it out on the bike this weekend. Friday was mediocre at best. It was a bit cold, so after work I went out to dinner with a friend, and had some brews. Willoughby Brewing Blueberry Ale, again. Love the stuff so much that I think I'm going to have to review it sometime soon.

Saturday was cold and windy to beat the band. Sidebar (I haven't done a sidebar in a while): What in the heck does "to beat the band" mean, anyway? Oh well... Saturday was miserable. Worked on the bathrooms and watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall with the wife. Good movie! Funny. Made better with a growler of WBC Blueberry Ale and muscles. I love that beer.

Sunday was pretty much a wash. By the time I got out of church, we dropped off some Easter food to those in need, and then I worked some more on the bathrooms. Made dinner, ate, now it's dark... I swear! I really need a vacation from my life. Ugh.

Anyway, soon enough this should all change. A big change? Pretty soon I've committed to starting a Monday night ride in the Lake County, Ohio area. More specifically the Mentor, Ohio area. If you are interested in riding, we are thinking of a 5:30-ish start time. If you want in, you're welcome to ride with us. For now it looks like a Monday 4/13 start. The day after Easter, and the Easter dinner. This should be interesting. The ride will probably be just either side of 20 miles to start, ie: day one, and gaining in length and complexity over the summer.

If you're interested in joining in, please contact me HERE and I'll fill you in on all the details. For now, have a great week, and check back tomorrow for more fun, er, phun.

So Phunster,

While your sitting at the table sampling all these brews with your friends are you challenging them to the, "one beer for them one for LAF"?

Boy Scouts always set up the donation can outside the Powerhouse here. Nothing fills a donation can quicker than a guilty drinker.

Just ask the church.

Calling you out on it.

THIS, B, is why I have the utmost respect for you!
This is a GREAT idea! It's got my brain grinding in a few directions... Hmmmf... Interesting idea.

The first turn of the wheel is the most significant one. It sets your direction, tempo and mindset.
It also gets you to the pub
