|Meet here at 10:00am: (I had to hustle!)|
The day was almost perfect. Copious amounts of sunshine and warmer temperatures. There was an increasing Southwest wind, but otherwise there was no reason for me to think I couldn't pull it off and make the meeting place by 10:00am. Things were progressing along well, but as I got closer, I could tell it was going to be tight on time.
I pulled into the parking lot and looked at the clock in the truck. Right on time, but getting inside I would be maybe a minute late. Oh well.....fashionably late? No matter, Chris Skogen was there and after I got my cuppa java, we engaged in a conversation that was surprising, relaxing, and encouraging. Then we went for a bit of a ride.
There was a long climb the likes of which we don't have in our area. I think I blew out some cobwebs on that one! It wasn't a very long ride, as we both had to get back to our respective homes, so no epic stories of adventure, but it was a great way to get to know each other a little better. Bicycle rides can be like that.
