Preparing for the Ride

Over the last few months, the team has been training for the ride, going on 20, 30, 40 and 60 mile rides to test and improve our endurance and to build up leathery tissue on our derrières.  One trip included the 40 mile Tour de Long Beach ride, where we finished one, two and three, as the medals indicate.
During the months preceding the ride, there were, 2 flat tires and a 3 bike spill, with only Rick drawing blood.  Bob, being a bit concerned about his lack of conditioning and readiness for the 60 mile a day regiment, conferred with Dr. Mike, who conducted a treadmill and EKG for stress.  Bob was released with authorization to proceed with a prescription for case of Advil.  Is he crazy or just has a death wish?


  1. Bob, don't hurt yourself. Please come back in one piece. Love your wife

  2. Sounds like a fun trip! I hope the weather cools off a bit before you get there. I'll be following your progress along the way. Cindy

  3. Have a great trip! I guess you're more than half way by now! I will have a beer or 2 in your honor.
