50-miler to Townline RoadPosted by Rob DeMone
A fairly leisurely ride with Andrew Brink for 50-ish miles out to Townline Road near Abbotsford.
The weather threatened all morning, but we got through it without rain. My heart rate monitor is still not working, so I gotta go on the hunt for a new computer to collect data.
But the highlight of the day was the Gardening Party at Gen. Vipond‘s in the afternoon.
A goodly posse of Rogues showed to bring chaos to the order of Mike and Sharon’s wonderful backyard gardens. Mike (he of the busted-ass shoulder) needed a hand getting some azaleas into the ground, and some other stuff out.
So the Lovely Miss Vickie and I, John Forsdick, Meg Peters, Smilin’ Brian Lewis, Dale Anderson, Freckles Brink (in a brilliant supervisor role), Karl Cantner and Prancing Bill Liang got a little dirt under our nails Saturday. It was great fun, and count on Bill Liang to provide the biggest belly laughs, showing up just in time for clean up, with coffee, cakes, and two left gloves.
“I was going to bring my gardener,” he deadpanned.
The sun came out, the Keiths were cracked – we coulda been a beer commercial.
Be safe – The Canada Day ride is this weekend.
