If not for Lorne I would have been forlorn. ABES would have had it's first Thursday Night Ride shut-out. Lorne could not be deterred by little (a lot) of wind and the lure of the couch. Lorne is my hero. We howled at, and laughed with, the fierce prairie winds. 7 miles of spinning before we rolled into the clubhouse to be later joined by Paul and Duke. Conversation included poker night, wasabi and sushi, March madness, and the embarrassing situations of acid reflux. Paul B reported that the Maroons beat the Warren Mercs 7-3 to tie the SEMHL Championship series 1-1. Sweet Actions B side curling playoff game is postponed until next week.
In ABES related news...Plans are in the works for an August bicycle race at the Altona Moto X Park: The ABES Dirty Double Crosser. An unsanctioned cyclcross race that MAY feature hand-ups, hand-downs, a soak zone, tequila shortcut, paintball shortcut, dodgeball, time trials, kids races, and a canteen serving bbq-goodness. Its going to be hellafun. JS
