August Party Ride
The above photo is a good depiction of the August Party Ride madness (thanks Sean). It was a wild bicycle jungle out there.
The first stop of the ride was again a great one, the keg was tapped, ice cold beers were grabbed from the coolers, people started to mingle and get loose, and a new bike game was introduced. Bike Golf or Bike Dingle-balls.
Stop 2 is the swim and surf stop. A welcomed relief from the heat. Again, no-one drowned, the beer stayed cold, and we added two or three people to the ride, so it was considered a successful stop.
Stop 3 was under the Pueblo Blvd bridge for more swimming, music, socializing, and the addition of the Burrito Lady for this ride. She now knows that we are a hungry group and will be more prepared for it at the next ride. She was really great though and even made a beer and food run for us, despite being sprayed with mud by a power-slide during the water-bucket bike game. We lost a few riders at this stop, but the majority forged ahead.
The next day was slow to get going, but I was already looking forward to the next ride, September 3rd, same time, same place.
