Coffee Ride and New Feature

by on April 22, 2014

We had a nice Coffee Ride this morning featuring a free cup of coffee at The Big Bean (organ donor special).  Our pace was easy (for half of us) as we just keep the legs spinning without tiring them out before the Flèche.  I still don’t have my bike frame.  UPS never delivered to the bike shop yesterday.  Tracking says it will be here today.

A friend of mine (before he shut down his blog) was recounting world history based on miles he rode, so if he had 300 miles in on the year, he would write about what happened in the year 300.  He inspired me to try something just a little different in keeping with my being a pastor.  I’ll be rolling it out in stages.

For the first stage, I’ll cite the Bible verse corresponding to the miles I’ve ridden for the year.  Those out of context verses should prove to be interesting.

So, with 1,708 miles ridden this year, I give you the 1,708th verse in the Bible.

“and the fish in the river died. The river stank so that the Egyptians could not drink its water, and there was blood throughout the whole land of Egypt.” (Exodus 7:21 NRSV)

With 28,248 miles on the bike, I give you the 28,248th verse in the Bible (Stage 2).

“Fellow Israelites, I may say to you confidently of our ancestor David that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day.” (Acts 2:29 NRSV)
