This weekend we did two a short rides, one on Friday Sep 17 and another on Saturday Sep 18, 2004.  Bob and I were the only ones to participate. 

On Friday Bob and I did a mid-afternoon ride around town.  We couldnít go too far away since Bob was on car pool duty to pick up the middle schoolers.  It was nice weather temperature wise, but a little windy.  Overall a nice day for a ride. 

Since it was after lunch already when we started and too early for dinner, we decided to try out the new frozen custard machine in a little pizza place right on Main Street in downtown Rochester.  Once we got there we parked and locked our bikes and went inside.  We were surprised to find out the frozen custard machine was not working.  I think the guy said it was down for cleaning.  Seemed like a strange time to be cleaning the machine during prime demand time.  Once you get the urge for an ice cream cone you canít just shut if off.  Luckily we have the old reliable Dairy Queen just up the rode and that was our next destination.  I ordered a medium soft serve with chocolate and vanilla mixed.  Bob had the same and I am happy to report it was very good. 

Being on a bit of a tight time schedule we started heading home after finishing our ice cream.  The ride home was uneventful, just a nice windy ride up hill.  Needless to say even though the temperature was very mild, even on the cool side, I worked up a good sweat on the ride home due to the hills and the wind.

Our sons soccer team had a game scheduled for noon on Saturday Sep 18, 2004, but Bob and I still found the time to squeeze in a morning breakfast ride.  I rode over to Bobís and left around 8:00 am.  We rode over to the Greek Island and we both had the breakfast special.  Bob ordered his without the hash browns.  After a nice breakfast we took a somewhat regular way home winding though side streets.  Again this was a very nice day for a ride, perfect weather.

Jonathan and Markís soccer team started the new season with Bob and I at the coaching helm again.  We had our first game on Sunday Sep 12 out in Macomb.  We won that first game 8-0.  We had our second game on Thursday evening September 16 out in Clarkston and we won that game 7-0.  The most recent game was our third on Saturday Sep 18 at Borden against our first local team, we also won that game 7-0.  I guess you could say we are off to a good start.

Following are the statistics from these two most recent rides.  Friday total miles 13.2, max speed 20.5 mph, average speed of 10.5 mph with a total time moving on bikes of 1 hour and 14 minutes.  Saturday total miles 11.2, max speed 19.6 mph, average speed of 10.5 mph with a total time moving on bikes of 1 hour and 3 minutes. 

Thanks for checking in.
