Happy Memorial Day to All!

This weekend Jim and I are heading toward Roanoake, VA for the Wilderness Road Ride and Mountains of Misery Century.

Well let me clarify that I will be riding the Wilderness Ride of 29 miles on Saturday and I will be sitting at the finish line on Sunday with a cowbell and my sunhat, cheering like mad for Jim and those folks willing to suffer the final climb, which is described like this...

"The Challenge Century (100 miles) has nearly 10,000 feet of climbing. Don't worry, or maybe, worry- both routes still end with the climb up to beautiful Mountain Lake, a five-kilometer category 1 climb, reaching road pitches up to 11.9%!"

The motto of this ride is: "You forget the Pain"

We are also going to a dinner tonight where the guest speaker is Bob Roll!! Tour de France/OLN fans know who I am talking about! We have brought our book "Bobkee" and are hoping to get an autograph and a photo op! Chances are good on both!

Obviously, I will be driving the shift home on Sunday night ....I predict that Jim will be sleeping soundly in the seat to my right.

wherever your weekend takes you ... I hope it is a wonderful one!

Have fun!!

Bob Roll is God. Or if he isn't, I'm pretty sure they have the same sense of humor.
