Saturday dawned warm and partly cloudy. Perfect for a bike ride.
That’s a good thing, because the Cedar Hill Rotary Club held its annual “Head for the Hills” bicycle rally on Saturday. Greg, our younger son, came for a visit and to participate in the ride with us.
Greg hasn’t been riding much. Neither had I, plus I had time constraints, so he and I settled for the 20-mile route. Brent, of course, launched into the 62-miler.
We rode into some annoying wind, but knew that same wind would help push us back to the start/finish. The clouds kept the temperature from getting too hot.
As Greg and I finished the ride, Red Robin Burgers was just firing up their grill.
Oh, yeah. Fresh, juicy cheeseburgers with my favorite toppings and a Coke.
And a bottle of water.
And another Coke.
Brent finished his ride at a great pace, and enjoyed his burger in turn. We even had time for a quick swim before I had to get ready for my meeting.
What a perfect day!
Seven years ago, I wrote a thoughtful post about this same rally, which you can read by clicking here.
But not this time.
This time, I’m just gloating. Don’t judge.
Thanks for reading!
