You meet the nicest people on a bike!

It’s that time of year again!  Spring is finally here and it’s time to get out on our bikes.  Today will be our first of hopefully many rides this summer.  Last summer was the worst season since I’ve owned a bike for riding.  I don’t think we made 5 group rides all year.  This year will be different, I am committed to log more miles, spend more time with friends and use our bike to get some “down time” from my daily responsibilities.

I was looking through some of my past road trips, some were short day runs, others covered a few states and multiple days.  They all have a few things in common…fun, food, and lack of stress!

We’ve been riding for a little over 10 years now, that seems hard to believe.  I’ve never really had a hobby that I enjoyed until riding came along.  For some reason, I am so focused on making it all work together and keeping Marlene and I safe, that concentration is relaxing to me.  I’m not thinking about much of anything else but my surroundings and how the bike is running.  Seems weird right?  All I know is it works!

Above was the ride we called “The Bacon Run” all this to get a BLT sandwich with 1 pound of bacon!  What’s not to love about that?  Best of all, we made some memories that will last a lifetime.  No one needs a sandwich with that much bacon, but we laughed uncontrollably when we saw the size of that thing!

So today we will head out with our Faith Rider friends in Nashville in the search of good times and a new place to eat.  I do know this, it will be fun, we will eat well and I will be better rested as a result of it.
