On the last weekend in June of 2011 the Capital Bicycle Club  sponsored a Two County Double Metric Century Bike Ride.   About 350 riders participated and our biking group was among those along for the ride and the good spirits.

CBC wrap up

We wanted to test ourselves for our 2200 mile ride starting August 15,2011 from the Canadian Border to the Mexican Border – 5 weeks through the Mountain Passes.  It was good training and tested our legs.

I did not know if I would be able to participate as our puppy swallowed something smooth and large and had to have emergency surgery in Tacoma the night before the ride.   By morning, our puppy was resting easy and they had removed the object and were keeping him sedate and under tight watch.  It relieved my tension to get out with a group and ride.

It turned out to be a bit cloudy – sunny and just an amazing ride and I was so glad to have gone and completed the event.    I was also grateful for a hot shower and a nap afterwards to regroup.

Fourth of July weekend we did 80 miles through the Capital Forest Area on our own and in glorious sunshine – definitely feeling like summer.

We are off to a good start!

How about you have your summer activities started are you re-creating yourself?  What is your pleasure?
