There has been a lot going on since I posted about the Konocti Challenge bike ride and it is going to take a while to "Ketchup"!.

One new thing..., the SOB's have come into being.
(Seniors On Bikes)  (Short Of Breath) (Silly Old Boys) whatever....

It pretty much started out when I noticed some other "old" bicyclist were riding about the same time of day I was.  First Bob and then Jim.  We decided to meet each morning at the Skunk Train parking lot at 10:00 for a ride out the haul road and back.

Soon we realized we needed to replace lost calories and caffine so added to the end of our ride a visit to the Cookie Company (Zappas) for coffee and a cookie.

Over time we have attracted other retired guys to our group and we now number a dozen!!

Not everyone can make the ride so it is hit and miss, sometimes we are just one or two; the most at once was 9, what we call a Critical Mob!!

Once a week, usually on Friday, we do an extended ride.

Today we are going to do a 16 mile loop out Sherwood and back on the A&W.

Having some guys to ride with really encourages better attendance and I am riding almost every day thanks to them.

There is more to say and show but for now, it is coming up on 10:00 and it is time to roll!!
