Lee was out being a good parent, but Eric from work wanted to ride with us and duly showed up at Zube. He's a tall chap like Lee and Kevin but there the resemblance ends, he's too skinny to block any wind. He also wasn't aware of his domestique duties but never mind, he can be taught.
Another beautiful morning for bike riding, a little cool (Kevin and Eric were rocking arm warmers, I was bare armed and goose-fleshed) but tons of sunshine and blue skies. There was a breeze from the south-east, a good MS150 wind, but not strong enough to be a big issue.
Up and at 'em, and Eric proved to be a pretty strong rider, keeping pace with Kevin most of the way round. We reached the gas station in good shape and opted to go for the longer route home, giving us 51 miles for the morning. An uneventful ride, really. But it turns out that Eric is lactose-intolerant and didn't want his chocolate milk. I suppose that means I'll have to find chocolate soy milk somewhere if he's going to come out with us again.
