I am humbled by the Sunday ride


These are my training buddies, shown here midway through a 40 mile ride on a nearly perfect Sunday morning. That's my neighbor Dave on the left (whom some of you know from my training blog as "Swat Team Dave" but he's been promoted, so now he's "Homicide Dick Dave" and I can show his picture since he doesn't do undercover anymore). Standing next to him is Jill, my pal from waaaaay back (PGTX on the training blog), and Kelly, a very nice friend of Jill's who occasionally joins our little group.

All these people kick my butt on the bike. Here's a picture of the three of them from the rear a few minutes later:


What's that you say? You can't see them anymore?

Welcome to my world.

  2. Ah, well, what's the rush anyway. I never ride fast myself, it hurts much more if you fall off...

  5. "Dick" Doesn't sound like a promotion to me.

  6. Now, Dave. I don't make up the nicknames for detectives--you'll have to take that up with the Detective Nicknaming Committee...
