i was going to ride with brandon. dan was going to ride with justin and steve. we ended up riding together with none of the others. they all slept in or something.
after figuring out brandon wasn't coming with us, dan and i rode north of town, biding our time till dan's meet up time with justin and steve. we crossed over from highway 61 to highway 281 on 20th and rode into town with a northwest wind at our backs. i saw the "legendary" dog of north 281, but he missed us. we were too fast.
we rode to justin's house and waited for a bit. no lights on and no activity, so we rode back up to fifth street and headed west out of town hoping to catch the other dan on his daily out and back to cullison. i lost about three miles of data when my garmin failed to restart, so there's a gap in the map. ignore it. i am.
we didn't catch the other dan either, so we turned around and headed back toward town. just before we reached skyline school, the rain started. it was wonderful. the wetness cooled the air and over our shoulders to the west was a beautiful arching double rainbow. wow!
dan dropped back while we rode the wet road into town. i guess he didn't like eating my rooster tail. when we got to town, we sprinted for a bit and then turned off to head home. i arrived about the time my wife got back from her run. (19.93 miles @ 16.9mph)
