Sometimes the Best Part is the Coffee

by on July 30, 2013


  • It was cool (64° F).
  • There were many of us.
  • It was fast, at least as fast as I wanted to go.
  • I got dropped on the hill.  Nothing new there.
  • The sunrise was pretty.
  • Since it was Tuesday, the ride “ended” at The Big Bean.

It was at The Big Bean that Chip and Clint got their first chance to tell stories from the Big Wild Ride (the 1200 k in Alaska).  Chip was especially loquacious with his descriptions and it was non-stop story-question-answer-repeat for some 30 minutes before some of us had to head home for the morning.  They had a great time.  Chip said that he took a lot of photos, so we are anxious to see those.

And, on top of it all, we got to see Mike B’s new single speed (soon to be fixie).  It is one pretty bike.  He’s been in the market for over a year.  There was a little dialogue about gearing that he needs, and it will be fun to watch his learning curve.

This Ride: 20.1 miles
Malaria Campaign: 1217.8 miles
Funds Pledged: $608.90
Contributed in support: $1,487.60

Total = $2,096.50
