A month ago I planned to do both these events, but sometimes real life and responsibilities take precedence. Saturday was supposed to be the Bootleggers Bliss,
but my daughter was asked to participate in the All County Cross Country Invitational. It wasn't really a hard choice. She ran hard, and placed middle of the pack, with her sweatshirt draped casually over one shoulder. Go Emily!
Sunday was the Bicycle Escape's 2nd Photo Ride, a casual paced ride with photography as the goal. Again, I was prepped to do it, but my son's basketball tryouts came between. I made the best of it. Sunday afternoon was spent on the back patio with a fire in the fire bowl, puttering around with bikes and drinking a few beers. I got the quickbeam back together, still using canti brakes, as the v-brake levers are out of stock. When they get in I'll switch them over.
I also made a nifty little light bar to go on the rack of my commuter/geared bike. A bit of pvc, paint and a couple of bar end plugs and I'm stylin'.
