Fun Weekend

I was fortunate to do a couple of bike rides this weekend. Yesterday I attended a vintage, classic and fixed gear enthusiasts gathering in Baltimore County. We braved rain to do a 25 mile ride, and then had a cookout, while looking over everyones bikes. There were some really nice rides there, both vintage and modern. The only downside was the absence of Tom Bruni, who was killed riding in Carroll County last week. Tom was a frame builder and big supporter of the bike scene in Maryland. There were several Bruni Bikes there, and he is sorely missed already.

Today I lazed around and watched the Tour de France in the morning, but finally got motivated and went for a ride in the oppressive heat and humidity. It was hitting me hard climbing Catoctin Mountain past Gambrill State Park, but some thunderheads rolled in and cooled things down and I raced them off the mountain and back to the truck. 37 hard fixed miles.
