Backyard fireworks were fun too. I spent too much money on gunpowder wrapped in paper, but it was worth it to see the smile on the kid and wife's face.
Saturday, I decided to do the bakery ride. It starts at 10 am and for some reason I left the house too early. I would have to wait 30 minutes, and was not sure if anyone would show up, due to the race in Brevard. I kept riding, and did the loop solo. Lots of washed out driveways with gravel all across the road. Be careful.
I made the stop at Zuma in Marshall for espresso, peanut butter cookie and a Coke. Setting a temp pace back to the house felt good. The French Broad River was pretty high. It was definitely runnable if a person had the skills, with lots of good surfing waves as well.
I wondered how, psychologically, the affect of riding upriver has on my speed/effort. Hmmm.
Busy week of providing mountain bike outings to youth coming up this week! Can't wait.
