Our bike group’s annual new year’s day dinner and ride was cancelled due to our hosts being sick. Nova and I still wanted to get a ride in though even if only a few miles. We’ve been wanting to try kombucha and decided to make the grocery store our destination and purchase some. Once the temperature reached 1 degree we took off. The kombucha was frozen when we got it home.
Sunday I went for a spin on the gravel as I was going stir crazy at home. After years and years of working and riding in the cold, I still haven’t got dressing for the cold figured out. I believe my biggest problem is that I sweat so easily even in freezing temps.
Monday we rode to my parents where we had taco bowls for our holiday dinner. Not visible is my basket filled with refried beans, guacamole, jalapenos and non dairy queso that we brought.
Probably should have been preparing Thanksgiving dinner but the weather was so nice we decided to first go for a quick ride to the casino, pull a slot machine and return home. Got home just in time to get all the cooking done with no time to spare.
Our bike club’s annual New Year’s day get-together. We met at our host’s house where we ate and socialized before going on a short ride. Lots of great food. I made butternut squash soup.
Happy New Year!
Not our host’s house but a near-by university building.
Yesterday we held our 2nd annual Cranksgiving ride and food drive. Small turn-out but we got a fair amount of food to donate and I believe all who participated had fun. We gave out a prize for the first to return with food from all the stops. Also held random drawings for prizes. Our threesome only made 4 of the 5 stops before running out of time. Hmmm I wonder why? lol
Today I rode to the store and converted a monetary donation in to food.
Yesterday we attended our club”s first Be My VELOntine ride. We met up at for food and drink and deposited valentines and candy into decorated boxes we had attached to our bikes. We then rode to another bar where we emptied the contents of our boxes to see what we had gotten. It was a really fun time and everyone seemed to enjoy it.
