Well, after a nice 18 mile spin down Tramway Blvd and then south on Rio Grande, we made it to 4th and Roma where the crit starting line began. We ran into an old coworker of mine and friend of ours, Larry! He's just come back to the states after a nice vacation to Spain. I'm jealous. He was with a friend of his, Alex, who knows another of our friends, Scott. Geesh, it's a small world when it comes to the bike community! We ran into Jackie while we were down there as well, and tons of other bikers that Matt knows.
By the time we were done watching the first round of crits, we were hungry, so we took off for lunch at the Rolling in Dough Bakery & Cafe. The food hit the spot and we were ready to go back to the crits. Bummer, we only caught the tail end of the women's crit. There was only 1 group of only 5 women. I'm used to seeing multiple categories--of course that's in Durango at the Iron Horse. Guess it's more popular. Got to watch 2 of our friends, Dan and Travis race in the A and B crits.
Got home with 37 miles and 2:30 hrs total ride time. Just in time to catch the Miami Dallas basketball game on the tube and fire up the barby for some dinner.
~It was a wonderful day~
