Minutes of the Thursday Night Ride - May 7, 2009

From the desk of El Presidente (David S):

A cool and blustery night did not deter the hardy Southern riders from the Thursday Night Ride.

13 riders in all - Jonny S., Duker, Gavin, Lorne, Mark, Giles, Dan, Mike, Curt T., Gord, Curt F., Alvin, and myself braved a coolish Manitoba spring night to ride around the sweetest town in humanity.

The ride convened at the appointed hour of nine at Jonny S.'s place and quickly moved on to the W.C. Miller track for a spirited "last man out" race. I believe Mike won. Could have been Curt F.. Was trying to get my camera to work. Missed that one. We also ran a quick 400 metre race where Curt F. definitely took the gold while Jonny S. and myself had a photo finish for the silver. Only there was no photo. So I guess I'll say I won.

Post race we rode around town and cruised through the perimeter. Sauntered along the paths in the park and up and down the hill at the mosquito pond. Good times.

As always we concluded the eve by ambling over to Grumpy's Bar for a few cold ones and some lively chatter.
