    Seems like it! We made it to Southwick in record time with an athlete leading the pack! :rofl:
    Now I need to figure out what to put those grips on... wasn't expecting the gift! :)

    Glad you enjoyed the ride! I'm shot as well...my knees have never hurt so much! :21:

    What an absolutely perfect day! Great weather! Great Bikes! and Great riders! As many of you are aware, I usually ride about 2 miles and stop for a beverage or food ... or both. This was out of my comfort zone. But, I was promised superb donuts, so I made the trip up. I dragged my son, and my friend Tim along to share the pain ... err I mean joy of riding 60 pound bikes 30 miles.

    As usual, the beginning of the ride was just a walk around to see what everyone brung.

    Then Ian and Nick decided to ride my Uncle Stretch built bike. (I thought I had a pic of Nick, but I don't seem to). Ian is at full leg extension ....

    A couple of minor maintenance things to take care of ....

    Joe and Ian were too cool for us and had to leave. Joe to get to the Cape. Ian was at the end of his leash.

    After mile 24 this is what the leader of the pack looked like.
