Labor Day Fun

Had a pretty good Labor Day weekend. Spent Saturday and Sunday be-boppin' around with Tom visiting the 3 wineries that are fairly close to our home and enjoyed a nice Cellar Club dinner at Bethany Vineyards Sunday evening. The best part would have to be the group ride we had with a bunch of people from Felida!

On Labor Day we arranged to meet interested people at Fruit Valley Elementary School and took off for Frenchman's Bar. There were 14 of us total - which was an awesome turnout! We had a variety of ages, skill levels and types of bicycles...with a couple of people on borrowed bikes! The goal was to ride as a group as much as possible, but we had a couple of speed-demons off the front, but that was okay...the day was about having fun and getting out on our bikes. After leaving Frenchman's Bar a few of us decided to head to Starbucks at Esther Short park. There we had some good conversation and treats to cap off a perfect day! The weather cooperated for the whole time that we were together and even after we went our separate ways at the end. Tom and I had some sprinkles as we were getting close to home, but that was it!

I have been wanting to get a bike club of sorts together and have the blog up and running since the beginning of the year...it has taken this long to get a group of people together for this ride, I'm hoping that it won't be 9 months before we get the next group together!
