Will, Gina, Ryan, and I rode down to join The Ride on the Hill, where Alex was holding up a crowd of 8 waiting for us to join. We rode less than 20 miles, mostly meandering toward the river and back to the cars for food.

One story worth sharing (second hand): Will temporarily swapped bikes with Alex, and rode his stylish pink 1970’s Raleigh. When we passed a crowd of mullet-wielding supercross fans outside the Dome, some kids purportedly yelled “He’s got a pink bike!” in Will’s direction. In true form, Will stood up and yelled back “It’s lavender!” Classic.

I posted this in March 2004 during week 1566.
