In a stunning display of back channel maneuvering yesterday, a coup displaced Cappy's callout for a trip to auburn. Good natured as always, the Cap'n took this in stride and joined the rest of the crew who had selected bikes and attire more appropriate for the new agenda. Councilman stepped off the injured bench and made his first FT3 since knee surgery. After a send off visit from Safety First we undertook a ride that will become legendary for its abject lack of miles, dirt, bad weather, mechanicals or steeps. We did make it for tacos. Apparently our devoted Spotters had missed us in Pollywood, as several of them called ahead to the Knot to announce our progress.
Many grave conversations were had over dinner. On the topic of a regular replacement ride for Pollywood shut-out nights, NoHandle tried to devise a plan. However, he lost any credence when he placed a single taco order and no one listened.
Also, the 24 hour race was discussed. Sadly, Team One will not be able to field a full team and thus forfeited to Team Two. Instead of racing, enthusiasm is building for several summer adventure rides.
Fortunately, the snow should be sufficiently melted for things to get back to normal next week. But, just to be safe, we should all carry chainsaws.
