The first of 10 rest days is here! Surprisingly, my mind and body weren’t really screaming for a day off but now that is has arrived, I’m really happy. We've got a full schedule! Sheesh, feels like I’m back at work and have "back to back" meetings on my Outlook Calendar. Fortunately not one Zoom meeting or strategic objective to deliver! It's going to be a great day. We have a pleasant mixture of fun and "work" getting ready for the next 6 days on the road.Allegro Cyclery. Riley was a big help in answering some questions and 15 minutes and $266 later we limped out of there. Ouch! (Oh well, remember wallet and phone). I did validate we were still below our credit limit so we could afford to cross the street for a nice cup of coffee and a pastry.
Sweet Basil Pizza and had some waiting for us for lunch. We had a wonderful time reminiscing and catching up with both of them. Day 12) and caught up with us in Amsterdam too (May in Amsterdam). Third time was a charm today. It is always great to see them.
Big House Brew Pub. The beer was tasty (Solidarity IPA) and food was good and service was outstanding. Zuri even got ice in her water. It was warm out but seriously? Ice water for the dog? I had to take a picture because I know you would never believe me. It's there. Just look closely.
Weather is starting to heat up but since I went long on Wednesday to get to Walla Walla (great decision by the way), I will have a shorter ride to Dayton tomorrow. A nice way to ease back into the riding routine.
