Well....work is just crazy right now so the bracelets decided if they can't get a ride in then at least have a tasty beverage. I hope the bracelets are of age.

That is great !
To me it is on point. I think part of the fun is that whatever we are doing we are thinking about the forum community and sharing the event.

Based on current workload may only be able to get once a week ride in on the road + a day or two of spin class. However, I will make sure the bracelets stay entertained while visiting here.

They were asking about a trip to Graceland last night

Sorry to hear about the hectic schedule, Fpl, but don't worry about it. Life happens at the pace it happens, whether we like it or not. Enjoy your adventures, however few or many you manage .

Yep....do what you can is a good motto.

The bracelets were getting antsy and a little cabin fever was setting in. Luckily they got out for the first time for an early morning spin class.

Loading up for the first time

^^ Cool adventure, Fpl! Way to bring some diversity to the types of cycling represented in the bracelets' adventures.

The bracelets went out this morning for a back to winter ride. After 2+ weeks of spring weather it was hard to get acclimated to below freezing temps again. It was hard to take many pictures with big gloves, jackets, etc. we went on a fairly short ride and I could only get one other guy to go. The cold blast scared off too many I guess.

Packed up and on the way

At the meet up spot.

So damn cold didn't stop much to take pics but here are the bracelets trying to stay warm mid ride.

Did find a cool new coffee and donut shop mid ride that just opened. This will be very popular with cyclist as it's on a popular right. They will have some outdoor furniture too.

So the bracelets had their first ride in Tennessee. It'll be interesting to see how many states they hit on this odyssey.

Good ride FP! Nice to find those special shops to stop at along the way. We have an Amish restaurant that is jam packed with cyclists on a warm Saturday morning. I mean wall to wall....let's hope the donuts keep rolling so the riders keep rolling too.
