Ride Sunday

Ride Sunday

Leaving from Barbara Settel’s Sunday at 9:30 AM. Later because it is getting cooler. 2880 West Lake Road, Cazenovia, NY, 13035.

Last email I referred to my quotes in the Madison County Courier article on the EBC Renewable Energy Trail ride and said “And whoever wrote those quotes attributable to me, did a very nice job.” As Mary Bartlett pointed out, those quotes were lifted from an earlier email from me. It just goes to show, it is the lying mainstream media’s fault.

Don’t take the day off before a big event. If you need complete rest from riding, do so two days before, then take a short ride on the eve of the event—including a couple sprints to make sure your body (and your bike) are well oiled.

And whoever wrote those quotes attributable to me, did a very nice job.

Yesterday’s ride.

Congrats to Jeff and Sandy Palmer for scripting out another outstanding ride. About 35 miles through Morrisville, on to scenic English Road. And back near Sanderson and Old State Road. It was supposed to be rainy and overcast, turned out to be sunny and warm. It was just a beautiful ride with fall colors. The changing colors may be turning into the grey, cold bleakness of winter, but yesterday was glorious. Jim Francis gets credit for 70 miles yesterday because he did two rides, his second of the year with the club and his last ride of the year with the club. Glad he came back. I rode a portion of Howlett Road with Gioia Gensini, Angi Buckley, and Shelly Kempton but stopped after a while. I wanted to say “I got tired of riding with the girls.” But a more accurately “I got tired riding with the girls.” Janet Ohlsen (fresh from starting a new job), Pauline Cecere, Barbara Settel, Colleen Stevens, David Neff, and Chris Brown round out our pre Halloween 13 riders.

By now if I say to Pauline “Did I tell you about the time I…(fill in the blank)” I will inevitably hear “Yes you did, but tell me again anyway” It is amazing how sweet and thoughtful she is. Me, not so much. So on yesterday’s ride I was chatting with Jeff Palmer. With a normal person, you might have thought I would have heard most of his stories. Not so. I found out Jeff played basketball against Meadowlark Lemon? Yes, that Meadowlark Lemon. According to Meadowlark’s official website, at one time he was at one time one of Americas most recognizable faces (following Alan Alda, John Wayne and Bob Hope). I keep saying this is an amazing group, and we do not even know the half of it.

Next week’s ride

Anyone want to host next Sunday? I thought it was a bit early to move the rides back to Fayetteville. But if no one is available, we may ride from Fayetteville. Probably later to adjust for the cooling weather.

NO. 79 Icky but effective: If you’re going to be doing a lot of riding in cold, windy weather, don’t clean your ears as often as usual. Removing the wax makes earaches more likely, because it exposes the inner ear to rushing air.

Landfill ride

Great ride Sunday
We learned about recycling, wind energy, waste heat, and a lot of other stuff. I did not do to well on the quiz, but I got an excellent grade on lunch. Mary Bartlett gave a great (short) tour of the Madison County Landfill. We saw multiple energy centered sites on the shorter 20 mile route Jeff Palmer created anticipating the impeding inclement weather; which, fortunately, never came. After the ride we were treated to pizza, fruit salad, bottled water, and apple cider. A beautiful ride, hitting roads we haven’t seen before. Last ride of Summer, it was great to be there.
Gioia Gensini, David Neff, and Shelly Kempton got a late start due to mechanical issues and joined us later on the ride. Angi Buckley, her friend Teresa from Austria, Jeff and Sandy Palmer, Pauline Cecere, Janet Ohlsen, and Susan Shopiro rode Sunday. Also, Chris Walsh, a man after my own heart, showed up after the ride for lunch.
