Lightning shooting from the skies made us go further inland(east) to avoid the rain and the lightning. We set up at my house and rode out. Stayed dry and it turned into a good ride. Me, G-ram, Sweetness and the Orig. Ells. They killed me but I stayed close when they would pull up and wait a bit. I averaged 18.3 mph and they were right at 20 mph. They did 26 miles I believe and I finished with 25.

Oh the pain when you are the weak one in the group. It makes it all work.  Glad I did it because I needed the ride. We  were close to going inside BWW and getting wings and beer.

Definitely will, it was kind of a spur of the moment kind of thing.  We were talking about doing it again. It was a nice ride.

I know I do it at least once a week now.  End up doing at least 20 miles, but i figure it will be more fun with someone to pull me for a little bit :c)
