I was itching to get out for at least an easy ride. I felt better, with the exception of a sinus headace.
I decided to take an easy spin up into the Grandview area. I’m glad I did, I feel I did something productive and it did help me feel some better.
As I was riding on 1st Ave, at the stoplight at Oakland, one of the locals really made my day. “It’s that time of the year again. You guys come in and disrupt our neighborhood for two days”
My reply. as the light changed and rode away ” Thanks for your hospitality, and I hope you have a great day!” He’s definitely the exception.
I have decided to race both days.
