Last week we went out for our weekend Venus de Miles ride. Now, it was supposed to be a 38-mile ride out highway 36 to Lyons with a little Fruit Loop attached. Because it was so windy, and we all know it's no fun to be on 36 when it's windy, we took an alternate route through Hygene and then over to Lyons. Turns out, what I thought might be an extra 5 miles or so, was an extra 15 MILES.
On this ride were two ladies from Texas. JR and Lou from Austin and Waco, respectively, who were just visiting our beautiful town. AND, a super strong lady rider that just got back on her bike (Erin? I'm sorry... I've blanked on your name). AND, faithful Marion, who I will now refer to as Lady Hammer. I was supposed to be leading and Mac was sweeping. Ah, heeelllll no. These four women kicked our biking butts. Lou was gracious enough to pull me and Mac for several miles, but then we couldn't keep up with her crazy pace. These women are KILLERS!!!
Not only did these Lady Killers haul it on this extra long ride, they also managed to unmangle a chain from Erin's bike (again, apologies if this is not your name).
Those bike maintenance classes sure came in handy. And, of course, a little bit of women's intuition and elbow grease.
Bravo Killers. Keep on riding.
