James, Ike, David, Shaun, Curt, Mike, Duke, Charles and I were ready to ride but we also got a pleasant surprise. Curt and Mike had already driven to the snowmobilers warm-up shack near buffalo creek to start a fire and drop off refreshments so our route for the night was looking good. It was comforting to know a fire was awaiting us as the north wind was howling in our faces as we pedalled down the creek. Duke was riding his super-sweet new Jamis cross/touring bike from Back Alley Cycle that looks like it actually fits him. Charles had two headers navigating the creek shore, James had a nice, safe spill, Ike finally got his cross tires, the shack was a deluxe refuge and the wind pushed us back to our clubhouse. Minutes include: Shaun hurt his gooch, Mike studded the tires on his mini-bike to pull his kids on GT racers on the creek, The Beachcombers (using a canoe), another ABE is getting snipped, An Idiot Abroad, VPN’s, manscaping, UNC blows it against Duke, the Describe Channel, Mormons are so “in” right now, Sandra D crashed her car on the highway, Morris is a dirty town, the Altona Segway couple, and the Jets win in ridiculous fashion. A special ABES thank-you to Curt and Mike for prepping the shack and to BAC for providing refreshments. Good times.
Anybody interested in a Sunday morning ride? The weather is supposed to warm up and I have a route mapped out
East West of Morden (we’ll drive there) that includes hills, cement, gravel and lunch. Phone or post a comment if you want to come. JS
