29 Nov Black Friday Ride…
Despite the lousy weather on Friday, we still managed to assemble a crew and get a good ride in.
I think we had 14 people show up to our re-located location of the South Foothills. Unfortunately, we lost 2 almost immediately due to a bum knee and a bum foot. However, both those individuals rallied and met us after at La Cumbre, which no doubt helped them to recover from their injuries.
We even had a Black Friday type super special giveaway of a fancy new Bikeworks water bottle for anybody that showed up and wanted one. And fortunately, despite the excitement of a once in a lifetime opportunity for a free Bikeworks water bottle, nobody got overly excited and pepper sprayed anybody else.
So we got on with our roundabout loops in the South Foothills, thoroughly enjoying ourselves through the sporadic weather. Then a few went off to La Cumbre for a beer or three.
The beer was perfection, as always. Also, I enjoyed a burger from the burger truck that is often found parked in front of La Cumbre. If you haven’t had one yet, I strongly encourage you to. I can’t remember the last time I ate a burger that delicious.
