Breaking the chain
Another nice but slightly-cooler morning (so leg warmers and a base layer required) for the Thursday edition of our regular Tuesday/Thursday-morning ride. New today was the addtion of Jeff Z, one of our very good customers who also happens to be getting very fast on his Trek Madone. Y'know, after customers test ride and buy the bikes, and later bring them in for their 30 day check or whatever, maybe I should be loading up the tubes with sand or something? Jeff powered up the hill with Todd, with me hanging on for dear life until the park entrance, at which point I dropped off and waited for Kevin (my son, not the pilot) and the rest of the guys before heading back up.
No records broken, at least not by me, although Jeff and Todd did something around 25:40 which is close to the best for Jeff. Good thing Marcus wasn't there too or it might have been a minute faster!
The "breaking the chain" refers to the fact that this was Kevin's first ride up Kings in a while without a seizure, hopefully something that will become more normal in the days ahead. In the meantime, got to figure out what sort of interesting ride to do this coming Sunday!
