Free Ride, Etc

The weekend went like this. (in incomplete sentences):

Friday - work was no fun. Felt like I was getting discounted and shit on. But - who cares? Sometimes that's how it goes.

Friday night - hook up the Bob trailer and get groceries, then do a beer run to Skol Liquor.

Saturday - Lycra ride with K2 and Jeff around Lake Minnetonka, 60 miles. Lunch stop at 318 in Excelsior, always great.

Sunday - Ride to farmer's market, get honey, onions and cherries. Ride home, saw K2 running on greenway... say hi. Eat lunch and roll over to CRC for the Freeride. Had to be 250-300 bikes. Rolled off for a few stops then the phone rings. Turns out that it was someone from a Craig's list ad who had patio furniture we are interested in, she says come and get it and we comply. Abandon Freeride; get in truck (first time in ~10 days), go to west Edina and get furniture. We are pleased with the deal, install furniture on front patio. Back on the bikes and we head toward 1-on-1 but encounter a cycling family struggling to repair a flat tire... so I stop a volunteer to fix it and they are happy for it. We return to Freeride at 1:1, where Gene O. advises that the crowd has not yet arrived. Use fortuitous timing to get to the bath room. Crowd arrives, we catch up on beer consumption and tell Zito what a great time we've had. Band's set ends, discuss where to eat dinner and decide on Grumpy's... which exceeded expectations. Ride home, bathe and await TV show Minor Accomplishments on IFC. Pictures are here.... flickr
