Benidorm Bikes Mountain Bike Ride w/ Charlie
Every 4th Sunday of the month Benidorm Bikes has a group mountain bike ride for cyclist of all abilities; Benidorm Bikes Mountain Bike Ride w/ Charlie.
Hey, that's me!
The first one was a no show, maybe because it was Memorial Day weekend, so I just went for a long ride by myself.
The second one was a no show, which was fine by me because I had been hit by a car two days earlier and was in a bit of "discomfort".
But I was beginning to get a complex. If no one was going to show up why am I carrying a first aid kit and waivers? Why was I arranging my Sunday schedule around this?
The third one there was a threat of rain. I condensed the waivers and first aid to a one jersey pocket packet figuring I'd be heading out alone again, but just in case people showed up...and they did.
3 hearty souls all independent from one another were waiting for me at Res 6.
We got poured on, muddied and a little bloodied. We had a blast as I shared the trails I've been riding and discovering for over 20 years just minutes from Hartford!
Next one is August 24th, 8:30 AM starting at MDC Res 6 in West Hartford; hope to see you there.
