Wow! What a perfect day to ride and what a huge turnout with 24 riders! I'm sure everyone was there just to celebrate my birthday! I did make helmet ornaments to put us in the mood for a party on wheels, but I apologize for only making 18. I didn't want anyone to feel left out, but I suspect some people didn't really mind not wearing one of the curly doo-dads. I'll send photos as a follow-up. We rode from Pleasant View Park out toward Mt. Holly and gave those who wanted to climb some hills their opportunity on Gutshall and Red Tank Roads. After a stop in Boiling Springs, we worked our way back to the park and lunch at the York Street Grill. Karen and Steve Nibbelink surprised me with a one-of-a-kind birthday cake which we enjoyed as an appetizer while waiting for lunch to arrive. And Felix even paid for my lunch! Happy birthday to me!
