Second Training Ride...

I was going to ride my bike down to the meeting place for the training ride this morning, but got up too late to do it. I did get my water bottle clamp attached and my seat back pack attached to the bike in time for the ride.

We met at the state Capitol building, and had a really good crowd. Before we started a news van pulled up and asked about filming us at the beginning of our ride. Must be a slow news day.

I passed Joe along the way, and his bike was flipped upside down and about four people were helping him change a flat tire on his rear wheel. Too bad he didn't make it in time for the flat tire clinic yesterday. :-)

Gordon looked very sexy in his riding outfit.

At 3:00, I met Gregor for coffee at Third Place. He was late and when he arrived he was on the phone. With mum, so all was forgiven.

I tried, at two places, on the way to Third Place to buy him a couple of flowers, but one place was closed and the other only had fake ones at over $8.00 per stem, which was too expensive for a joke. On an e-mail Gregor had left me about us getting together he had said, "You don't bring me flowers any more."

I left there and stopped by Harris Teeter at Cameron Village to pick up ingredients to make two chicken recipes that I'd recently culled from one of my three new cookbooks.

Just as I was about to start dinner, Steve called and invited me over to have dinner with him. I ended up eating there, bacon-burgers, and chili-cheese fries! Not on the diet! It was yummy though. I brought a cucumber and had balsamic-vinegar and parmesan cukes. Delicious, too!

At home, I did a few TCW things in preparation for the board meeting on Tuesday.
