A Day Tour

The Gang

We’ve been promising a friend that we’d take him on a day tour of the trails and backroads around our area, but conflicting schedules and bad weather have been conspiring against us for months. Everything finally fell into place today and we spent the afternoon exploring our extended backyard while working lunch and a coffee break into the mix. It was an awesome time that could only be experienced among good friends on bikes. If you’ve never done a local day tour with friends, you might give it a try sometime. It’s a great way to visit while learning more about the area in which you live; all without getting in a car!

    There’s nothing quite like going on a ride with a good friend. I’m glad you had a good time, Alan.
    Oh, and can I say, that’s a mighty fine looking Surly there.

    Hey, where is the snow? This doesn’t count. This morning I laboured against a strongish headwind and waded through slush thanks to the last-night’s snow storm. You don’t play fair.

    Aw. This post — especially that happy photo — totally makes my day. I’m so happy you all found time to get together!

  • Nico Forte says:

    Rick and Erin – thanks, I had a great time. The weather held out, I learned of some wonderful trails and had some good food and coffee. But, doing this with friends is the difference between calling it an event and enjoying the experience. Hope we can do it all together sometime.
