I've got some great pals. I recently reached a little cycling milestone and the rando crew honored me with a cake at the start of yesterday's 200K. Nice! That really made my day. After that gesture, I almost hated to drop em on the uphills....almost.
A heartfelt thanks to the whole bunch who did that (I suspect Dean as the ringleader). The best part was that everybody got a slice at the finish. It went perfectly with the homemade brew that Fearless Leader Al served up.
