Saturday full of bikes

Celebrated my Father's Day/birthday weekend by hopping on the bike. Joined the Wilderness Perk ride Saturday morning. Bob and I eventually sagged behind the faster riders and went through Hallam for a fantastic 48-mile ride. Tailwinds all the way home. It was the last long ride before our TDN adventure.

Saturday night, the wife lined up a baby-sitter and gave me my choice of what to do. After careful consideration -- I chose to hop on our bikes for a casual ride down to the Haymarket for dinner. Sat outside at Buzzard Billy's and had a fantastic dinner. Best part -- no circling the area fighting for a parking space. The evening was topped off by after-dinner drinks at Doc's followed by a casual ride home.

Bikes rule!

What route?

Where's the petition?

What did you eat?

Buzzrd Billies... hmmmmm... wonder if I've been there?

Buzzard Billies was surprisingly good. That, or maybe I just hadn't been out for awhile. My Angler's Trio (catfish, talapia, shrimp) was fresh and the veggies were not slathered in butter.

I've perfected the route around the detour -- no petition needed. Though it was in the hopper, just is case.

Happy Birthday weekend, Kevin! Was it Saturday or Sunday?

Friday the 13th -- now you know why I'm a little off-kilter!
