Evening Ride

There was a notice in our local paper wanting to get people together for a bicycle ride Sunday evening at 6:00 pm. I had given thought of trying to get a group together in the past and now a notice appeared, so Janice and I checked it out. The only people that showed up were the two people that put the notice in the paper. They were on mountain bikes, so Janice and I waved them on because we had our tandem. We did have a nice conversation, I think because fellow cyclist are easy to talk to. It seems as though they had a lot of people interested, but they all seemed to have something else going on. I have noticed that it is very hard to get people to commit to a riding it goes. To all those out there that have a group committed to are very lucky, enjoy it.

We went by ourselves when we got home. It was a very nice evening ride. Very little traffic with many deer out and then add in a perfect temp with a very slight breeze. It was late by the time we got started, so it was only an 18+ mile ride...18 superb miles.
Some of the roads we rode this evening.
We stopped to photograph deer...too sloooooww. The road had to do.

Janice, I and the Univega tandem. On a side note, steel rides much, o mucho better than aluminum. The Univega is steel.
