Sad Trip Home

Well, these are the trips I never want to make to see my family. It also makes living so far away harder.
A brother of mine, I have 5, died suddenly last week, so I planned an emergency trip for his funeral, which was yesterday. It was nice to see many relatives I had not seen in a long time, but in unfortunate circumstances.
I am staying umtil sunday, so I did bring my bike. Not sure how much riding I'll get done. I did do my favorite 60 miler today, it was cold but sunny, like the weather we'd had in Seattle last week. I hope to get a group ride on Saturday,we'll see how the weather is, as there is snow in the forecast up north, so maybe 38 degrees and rain here, on my race bike??? A day of tea and biscuits might be in store, or a trip to the local horse racing track with another brother, gambling and drink beer.
I am pretty sure I will e in full view of the follow car at mason lake this year...again, I just hope it doesn't pass me until at least the last lap.

I think I must comment on the waving issue, when big groups meet, I declare yelling to be ok too.The thing is when it's only one on one that's when you should be sure to wave. We're all friends after all,so just give a little wave ; -)


Keep your stick on the ice!
