This weekend, I was fortunate to ride with Jerry Phelps, the guy who will soon be #11 on that list. Jerry has an impressive streak going, with an uninterrupted 60 months of 200Ks. I've been with Jerry on lots of rainy, cold rides, but Saturday was none of that. Instead, four of us basked in morning sun and seasonably comfortable temperatures throughout the day, with a trailing wind that showed us the way home. We rode Dean's Tar Heel 200, taking time for a Subway break in Tar Heel and a milkshake stop at Andy's in Steadman. A fine time was had by all. Ian, still aglow from his successful 1000K, showed up at the finish with a cake to mark the occasion. Camaraderie and icing on the cake!
Congratulations to Jerry from all of us, and long live the streak!
