Being a disorganized person as well as bike rider, I do one organized bike ride each year - the Hope Ride. It supports the Hope, IN food bank, takes us through beautiful Indiana farm country, and provides wonderful homemade cookies at the rest stops. The temp at the start of the ride was chilly - about 50°F; at the end it was in the mid 60s. The wind was calm at the start and strong from whatever direction I was riding into at the end. The few car drivers that were on the roads with 2,000 bicyclists were friendly, patient, and gave us wide berth. I'm hoping for a few more rides before the weather tells me it's time to hang up the bike for the year and switch to ice skates, but I'll be happily surprised if any are as pleasant as today's.
