Today I did the 9:00 am ride with the Spokane Bicycle Club. The estimated 35 mile distance turned out to be 43. Add the 20 miles round trip from home and I put in some time on the saddle. But that's not what I wanted to tell you about.
Of the eight riders this morning, four were old enough to be my mom or dad. The other three were 10-15 years my senior. At 52, I was the "kid" of the group. Pretty funny. Now you might think that riding 43 miles with a group of 60- and 70-year-olds would make for a long day. Absolutely not. This group cruised right along. And 20 years from now I will too.
