Dale and I used to ride together at first light every weekend, and his normal pre-ride preparation was a bottle of red wine and a Cuban cigar. He very kindly offered to bring a few choice vintages over to my house tonight to get me in top form, but I elected to pass. Still, with Obama making overtures to Castro, perhaps I should re-consider?

And the ribbing starts -
My friend Dale, who made an extraordinarily generous donation this year, has informed me that he expects me to do the whole ride in one day now. I counter-offered 30 minutes on a stationary bike in the gym today, with the 80 mile ride tomorrow, and he agreed to consider this if I upped it to 45 minutes.
