ride n cheer

packed friday night for the first gal's ride. i had to leave at 6:early to be there on time.
thoughts of leaving my family for a day, friends and music filled my mind on the 2 hour drive.
it was a bit chilly, but not as cold as i had thought it would be.
i pulled into the lot and regina was hanging out. the rest of the girls slowly pulled in. amelia, angela, soni, sonia, brittany, christine, lori, amy, claire...
we all headed out overdressed. some of us stripped at the first bench.
blue to connector to emma and back.
i fell once. i don't even remember. i just sunk in some sand in a turn. when i was sitting on the ground i almost laughed out loud. i just toppled over.
the trails were in good shape. lots of leaves. big holes of water. some i thought you'd get lost if you rode through them.
i had a really good time. it was nice riding with people who weren't way above or below your own skill level. the pace was good. sometimes fast, sometimes perfect and sometimes easy.
i've ridden the connector once before. this was my second time on it. i didn't know what was different to be honest? perhaps if i rode it more before they changed it, i might've picked up on it.
afterwards bunch of us stayed for a small picnic. amy d joined us. good times. i look forward to more rides.
saturday evening had me bummed for a bit but then we started on john's costume and that cheered me up.
drawing question marks over his tight bod was a pretty good time. when he took the unitard off we had to wash all the question marks off his skin.
sunday i left around 10:30 for the competition already getting over the fact i was missing halloween cross. it was pretty boring. i wished i had given john the camera as i 'm sure his pics would've been way more fun.
it was in a small high school gym with one bathroom for a ton of women. casey's team took first. she was a bit of a crank today. afterwards my mom took me to get a belated birthday present, so that was fun.

Hey, I owe you a few bucks for the horse trap thingy. I'll have to practice that sometime.

Please tell me you snapped a picture of John in his unitard while you were working on it.

spicyride said...

no, we didn't. i thought about it after. and then irritated with myself when i went to post this blog.
i'm hoping pics surface from the cross race. that unitard was more revealing than being naked...
and christine... yeah, man, where's my buck? he he.

I took some photos of the Riddler in action. They're on Ben's Flickr. Check this one out- man can he bunnyhop! http://www.flickr.com/photos/cardstock/1795741101/

Congrats to Casey.....

High fives for cheerleading for the win! The riddler was one of the best there yesterday, he got the wholeshot and bunnyhopped like the supervilan he is. Too bad John strangely dissapeared while the Riddler was out causing havoc on the race course...

spicyride said...

he said missing the first turn really screwed him. he had fun though.

That girls ride was a good time. It sure is nice to finally know some chicks MY speed, instead of having to ride with guys faster than me. . . .or slower than me.

I think you should move closer though. . . .I know a good Realtor who could find you a home up here. . . . . :-)

P.S. John's costume was awesome.

nice job on those question marks! Looks like John's costume turned out really well - I saw the pics.
