What a cookie :)

By reeset / On / In Cycling

Well, another year, another great monster cookie ride. The Salem Bike club does such a frantastic job of putting this ride on. The volunteers make sure that that the oranges, bananas, and peanut butter stays flowing and the then course itself is gorgous. Its a mostly flat course that takes you past lots of farm land and the Willamette River. And the weather today was great. It was a little chilly this morning, but the weather never got too hot or too windy. Kyle Banerjee rode with me and he took his new bike out for a spin. Its a tadpole (see below).


He let me take it for a spin. What a cool little bike. Disk brakes, tight cornering and comfy. I can definitely see what he likes it. Anyway — he crused right around the course with that little thing. If I had to guess, I’d say that we averaged about 22-23 mph for the day. I’m sure we could have got faster (and did for periods of 10 miles or so), but it made for a nice ride.

Here’s a picture of us at the park. I’ve still got my jacket on because it started to get cold. (see below)

And kyle is here on his bike. It really is as small as it looks.

So what do we get for finishing the ride — a Monster cookie. Mine was chocolate chip. All and all, a fantastic day.
