So, I was gonna ride my bike to work today. But, then I didn't. I know, I know...I'm kind of a slacker. Ok, a real slacker.
So, instead of writing about how glorious my commute in to work was today, I'm going to talk about the Ladies' Ride that I lead every Saturday from Greenstreet Cycles.
I woke up this morning to the sound of a thunderstorm and laid in bed thinking about riding, or not riding. I decided that I'd show up hoping for company on the ride but not expecting much of a turnout and was happily surprised to find a group of women hanging outside the shop as I pulled up!
This morning we started pedaling into a massive headwind with a group of about 12 gals. Oh what fun it is to ride...
One thing I particularly enjoy about these Saturday morning rides is the chance I get to throw my random event/trip ideas off of the gals who show up. My newest idea was well received! Let me know what you think: BIKE CAMPING! I'm excited. I've been talking about doing this for quite some time but have realized that if I actually tell people that I'm going to organize something, I'll have to do it. Thus the title of the post, Excuses and Accountability. That being said, I'm going to pick a Saturday night sometime in the next month or so and make this happen.
Here's the plan: meet at Greenstreet at 7:30 p.m. with bikes, lights, camping gear, food, beverages, what-have-you, good attitude, and anything else you can fit on yourself or your bike that would make the trip more enjoyable. We'll roll out and head down the Wabash and camp (location still being locked down but I have a few ideas...) and then enjoy the evening and pack up and roll out the next a.m.
Fun, eh?! Who's in? And what do the next several Saturday/Sundays look like? I'm thinking maybe June 12th? Thoughts?
