After a few minutes pondering nature, we hit the bikes once again. The rest of the afternoon continued to showcase Fall's seasonal palette of beautiful colors.
But, as with all good rides, the cycling must come to an end. And with this group, it can only end one way. Margaritas!! Yes, a little old restaurant by the name of Tequila Pancho's was calling to us, so after 15 + miles of riding, we drifted into the parking lot of Pancho's, locked up our bikes, and took our rightful places at table for fiesta!! I even used this opportunity to down a new flavor of beer...Dos Equis. When in Mexico...!
So, once again, another great ride in the books. The group plans to have one more Bike and Hike ride next week, so I'm already saving room for another round of burritos. I must, of course, give a shout out to my pal, Dave Manning; If it wasn't for his 2005 Corvette WITH attached bike rack (I will give you a minute to let that visual sink in)...I would have not made it to this event at all. Thanks, Amigo.
And thanks to Bonnie and Joe for getting us together to celebrate the great outdoors and our passion for cycling.
Until the next ride, "Stay thirsty, my friends!"
