Another Nice Saturday EBC Ride

Never knew I'd enjoy riding with a group as much as I do. It's Saturday, so we headed out to the Everglades Bicycle Club (EBC) 40+ mile ride to Black Point Marina.

The streets were wet near home, but all was dry and sunny by the time we got down to City Hall in Coconut Grove. The sun was bright on the waters of Biscayne Bay. The group that gathered for the ride was, as always, very affable. We were with the 16-18 mph group, making this a pleasant social ride day.

At the end of the ride we wandered through the Fresh Market Deli to take advantage of the air conditioning and to grab a small bag of candy. We didn't want to end the day with just 40 miles, so we rode around a bit get the total up to a more respectable number.

Then home and a quiet afternoon with some good books. A perfect Saturday.
