4 Hours of Pure Pleasure

Danielle, Jason and I had a nice ride this afternoon. It was mostly sunny, temps in the mid-20's, with some snow. Overall, the weather could have been much worse. I rode my cross bike, which I like a little bit better every time I ride it. Slingshot makes a quality product; if you are in the market for a cross bike, check them out!

Two notable incidents on the ride. First, we saw a bunch (flock?, gaggle?) of turkeys in a field on the side of the road. Jason started yelling at them, and they all took off running away from us. All of them, that is, except the Kamikaze Turkey of Death. This on got airborne and headed straight for us! Jason and I were up ahead a bit, but I thought for a minute that Danielle was going to have a turkey sandwich the hard way. In the end, she just missed it.

Later, we were cutting through a park near the end of the ride. Two kids were sledding, and the trail we were on went right by the base of the hill. Once again, Jason and I were just a little bit ahead of Danielle, so when the Uncontrolled Sledder of Doom came down the hill you know who was nearly taken out. That's right, it was Danielle again.

I'm going to try and post a link to the Motionbased review of the route. If it works, I'll try to post more of these in the future.

Ride Link : Well, it seemed to work. Enjoy!

Hey, I don't need to hook up my Garmin now. I'll just keep riding with you :-)

It still makes me laugh when I replay the girl on sledd trying to kill Danielle! Great link to the least now I can understand why I hurt.

Wow, that's some ride, and all I did was sit on my butt. That Garmin thing is pretty cool....looks like I need a new toy.
