After my commute yesterday I assumed I was done with 2-wheel wandering. Instead I received a very generous offer from Lithodale to come over to his manse and do as men should do on a Friday night, which is drink cold refreshing beverages courtesy of New Albanian Brewing. Hats off to such a fine host. We talked bikes, bikes and more bikes and it was all good in the fresh evening air. At some point whilst our time was winding down I received a text from Dave that he was finally escaping his ailing shoulder Hell and going to Cumberland. I stayed at Dale's a while longer (intermittently interrupted by young boys who really didn't want to go to bed. I don't have that problem. I just go to bed before mine do.) and then biked to Cumberland for another. Poor Dave is suffering. Let's all hope he goes on the mend b/c there are too many summer rides to ignore. An excellent last-day-of-school night, and I didn't have to buy even one glass. But I'm good for it.
