Biking - First SWC Thursday Night Beer and Pizza Ride of 2010

Every summer, the Schenectady Wintersports Club (SWC) holds a bike ride on Thursday evenings from a member's home. Several different ride lengths are offered, and afterward, we all gather back at the house for beer, pizza, and socializing. Tonight was the first one of the season, and Holly and I co-hosted it from her house. It was a cool and very windy evening, with temps falling through the low 60s. I started out on the medium (17-mile) ride, but cut it short to get back to the house in time to pick up the pizzas (six 12-cuts!). 27 people had come to this ride, and we actually ran out of beer, necessitating a beer run. It's called "an eating club with a biking disorder", and that's no exaggeration.

Anyway, I got in 12+ miles, and pushed myself a little here and there to make the short ride worthwhile. It was tough enough with the 20+ mph winds.

  1. And I am so sad I couldn't make it because I had business at NYC. Miss you and Holy.
