There are some very serious riders that I have no hope of ever being able to hang with. I do some of the moderately spirited group rides on rare occasion. I love the club for its n00b friendliness and the social rides we do.

Thursday evening we met up in Pass Christian MS and rode the new Bay St Louis bridge bike lane into old town Bay St Louis. I saw some old friends and made some new ones. The pace was a pace at which you could carry on a decent conversation. Traffic was very light and allowed side by side riding. It was an easy 20 mile ride.

Cool man! I give you major props for riding in the NO heat.

Looks like a circa 1990s entry-level Trek when then were made in the USA. Stamped steel components, plastic pedals....heavy and bulletproof. Tune it up, repack the bearings and go.
