Our 135 year old team - 142 years counting our team puppy Bandit certainly can't begin to do the kind of MAJOR rides that PMK and others have posted about. HOWEVER, I'm VERY proud of my sweetie GAIL - AKA - QOFE - Queen of F***ing Everything for her performance at the Catoctin Charity ride here in MD/PA.
August 30 (when it was a record 99 degrees) GAIL, my LOVELY bride of 47 years, pushed my fat old ass AND our dog Bandit - the Furry Brick (Bandit and I are 2X GAILs weight) up 3,300+ feet of climbs on the 50 mile Saturday ride. This even included pushing us up a VERY steep gravel road to the lunch stop that virtually every other biker walked It was so steep that the tandem rear tire was slipping most of the way up!
QOFE was more than a decade older than any of the many OTHER HAWT GALS on this VERY scenic ride and at least as old as the oldest man (other than me :>) AND she was fun and cheerful throughout the ride and partied with all the younger folks at the lodge at the end. Then she camped with me and Bandit in our tent at the Lodge at Blue Ridge Summit and rode back to the ride start on Sunday!
I LOVE this terrific gal more each year and consider myself THE LUCKIEST MAN ALIVE!!!
Sorry to be so mushy but I'm so proud of my sweetie that (after a few glasses of wine :>) I just can't contain myself!!!
PS: Bandit was also the cutest (and only) pup to complete the route and she charmed everybody at the Saturday evening party at the Lodge at Blue Ridge Summit!
