With the temperature in the low 70’s, it was a perfect day for a ride.
This was a coffeeneuring ride/meet-up for lunch. Anna, Sarah, Rebecca and I rode our bikes to a complex near the YMCA in Reston where there are several restaurants to have lunch with their mom/my wife, who is not really that into biking (to put it politely).
Becca selected nuggets with waffle fries and lemonade from Chick-fil-A. Jennifer and Anna split a big Potbelly sandwich with Zapp’s Pot Belly Hot Pepper flavored potato chips. Sarah and I halved a steak burrito bowl with corn tortilla chips and pico de gallo from Chipotle. Jennifer refused to eat at Chipotle because she was afraid of getting sick from food poisoning. In case you are wondering, both Sarah and I enjoyed our meal and neither of us got sick. Jennifer says that their new queso sauce looks good, but she can make it at home without ecoli! Ha!
I have to confess that I don’t think anyone actually had coffee. But, I think this ride still counts since we adhered to the spirit of coffeeneuring rule? I will defer the judges on that one. Either way, we had a good outing.
Now is probably a good time to give our friend Paul a shout out for coming up with and following through on the idea of swapping kid bikes. We gave up a cheap K-Mart bike that was getting too small for Becca for a much better blue Giant bike that was just the right size for her. I do think it was a win-win deal because we both got something that would meet our needs for something we were no longer using. And we will probably give him back the Giant bike for his youngest daughter (who is named Ellenor) once Becca outgrows it and Ellenor is ready for it.
