    Definition of a Sunday slow ride

    Did some riding, mostly stopping and talking, but some riding in between. It was really nice. Ran into PBR and the Hostess with the mostest. Seemed like a chill day for everyone out there.

    I almost got my butt out of bed this morning. Wednesday maybe would be good. I'll start sleeping now so I can get up.

    So what color jersey were you wearing on Sunday, Jay? I ride Ridgeline at least a couple of times a week. We were there on Sunday and ran into lots of friendly riders. Maybe you were one of them.

    I have a murdered out Specialized Stumpy HT 1x10 & gold chain, Red black and white helmet, black pack with a big red Burger King "Free the Whopper" pin on it.

    Sunday was an orange t shirt and black cargos. Cargoes are a given, the shirt may vary depending on the day and mood. How about yourself?

    We passed a guy in an orange shirt who was riding the opposite direction. I appreciated his visibility considering all of the blind corners at Ridgeline. He was starting up a particularly grueling trail with a couple of nasty, uphill switchbacks on the west side of Ridgeline. That was about 12:30.

    I ride a black and pink Pivot and was wearing a pink, sleeveless jersey. I was with a guy in a purple jersey on a white Specialized Stumpjumper.

    If you do get up early enough Wednesday, and you want company, let me know. I'd be willing to pop over and join you at Ridgeline tomorrow morning...

    We were out there around 4 ish. I'll keep an eye out for a black and pink pivot with a white stumpy in tow.

    Actually, he tows me up the hills; I tow him down

    We ride Ridgeline so frequently that there is a good chance that we'll recognize each other as regulars once we run by each other.

    Have a good ride Wednesday. I'm jealous.
