weekend rain

rainy weekend. rain on fri, sat, and sun. boo.
friday afternoon we got out for a quick ride around the block. laura on the vintage folding bike, i rode my robin hood 3-spd. it began to pour halfway around the block. yes, laura took her beer for the ride.
then saturday it rained in the morning and evening. midday we managed to get out for a nice route laura planned. it was a BOB and Fred ride. laura on the go-fast light weight road bike, and i was on my truck-like cross check.

cue-sheet!

lots of dirt roads round here

final leg back to the homestead

That looks like a nice part of the world, rain or no rain. I love a dirt road!

cute how to claim to have 'blocks'. poor laura doesn't even have a beer caddy on her handlebars. break out the thin gauge wire and fab!
