First Ride


Here's a picture of me and Kieran following my first team ride. Actually it's my first ride in almost 15 years. Don't I look pretty happy after finishing 20 miles? Things I learned:
1) I need to eat more than 2 scrambled eggs to fuel my body for a ride of that length
2) A cheeseburger & beer is a great reward for 20 miles.
3) A certain body part hurts after sitting for 20 miles.
4) You never forget how to ride a bike.
