What a Weekend!

Some pictures from the ride I lead for my bike club in Leiper's Fork on Saturday, and from the club's Pancake Ride on Sunday.

Saturday, on top of Greenbriar Road. It was raining at 9 am, stopped by 10 am when we rolled out, and was incredible the rest of the day.

Steve and Joyce Grizzle on their tandem, and Jill Flowers on her bike, at the turn onto Vestal Hollow Road. I spent the rest of the day trying to hang onto the back of the train behind the tandem. Unfortunately, I rode my single-speed, so that any time I got gapped, I was gone. Since this was too much work for me to do and take pictures, there are no more pictures.

It's called the Pancake Ride because we go to Puckett's Grocery in Leiper's Fork, where we are supposed to eat pancakes, and then retrace our route back. I rarely see any of the cyclists eat pancakes, since we're all too busy watching our weight. Regina had a hard time even getting people to finish the candy and cookies.

RandoGirl needed to ride at least 60 for the day, and the Pancake Ride route is only 25 miles. We added an extra 35+ miles by going down to Fly. At the base of Doug Thompson Road is a farm with these adorable miniature ponies. Everybody now: Aahhhhh.

Here we are hanging out on the front porch of Mr. Fly's store.

They were doing something called a Wagon Train in Leiper's Fork, and we passed this on Leiper's Creek Road just south of there.
