A ride, and a Birthday celebration!

Seven tandems and bright sunshine made for a wonderful PEACHES ride.  We spent the day thanking Mitzi when we coasted through the  lights, the unexpected police car that happened by and stopped traffic for us, and the newly paved roads.  Unfortunately John was responsible for the powerful headwinds (luckily they were rare)!

It was a great day to be on a bike, and everyone opted for the 40 mile option.  We stayed together for the most part, which was nice, especially through the trafficky parts when we could rely a little on the strength in numbers theory.

Lunch after the ride was at the ever popular, and PEACHES favorite, Los Hermanos.
