First ride report: Cool but worth it

April 20, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

First nice trip on the bike was yesterday.  I don’t know if we hit 50 degrees or not, but that didn’t matter.  After the week I had, I needed to get out for a ride.  Destination was unsure, we left that to our good friend Tom “Tumbleweed” Gibbons to decide.  Beside being an incredible friend, he is a great rider and Road Captain when we ride with our Faith Riders group.  He and his wife Barb are the first people we met at Hermitage Hills which is now our church home.  We are there partly because of them, but that is a story for another time.

Yes, chaps were necessary! Wind chill on the legs was pretty brisk

Tom and Barb are also our neighbors here at “The Webb.”  It’s easy to catch up with them when we are out on a walk or just to drink a cup of coffee.  Note:  Barb now owns a Keurig so it’s OK to drink her coffee.  :)   (Another story there)

Officially we logged about 125 miles of wonderful roads.  That is with the exception of “the mile long yard sale” we happened to ride into.  Not fun.  Lots of clutch and brake work there, but it ended up OK.  Tom planned a return route on the Old 96 which is one of our favorite stretches of road here in middle Tennessee.  Scenic and twisty, just the way we like it!

What’s a ride without dessert?  Incomplete!  Snow White Drive In was our final destination before we headed home.  All in all, a great ride with wonderful friends.  A perfect way to start the 2013 riding season!
