Best Birthday EVER

(okay, it could've been warmer. That would have been nice.)

Big big HUGE THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to everybody who came out for the ride today. You really made my day and it just meant so much to me that I have friends who would brave 35 degree weather to join me in my crazy idea to ride this morning.

Not only was it about 35 when we met up, but the fog was THICK!! All in all, 40 miles, 1835 feet of climbing, one bakery stop and good times were had by all. The weather was pretty consistent the entire time so thank goodness for the hills I threw in there!

Even in the cold, though, we managed to get some great cycling and some good laughs in. Enjoy the pics - I enjoyed every moment of this ride! The best part was knowing we had treats in store, between stopping at the Wild Flour bakery and enjoying a great lunch at Rosso afterward.

**Also: a HUGE thank you to Lee for providing extra clothing for my friends to wear!! That was a huge day saver, Lee. :)

Just click on the album below - it will take you to my Picasa album - much easier than posting all the photos here!

Looks great! It certainly was a cold day (perfect for a marathon in Sacramento though) and I'm glad you had such a wonderful birthday!

What an ideal way to spend a birthday!! Looks like a fun group you rode wtih... The fog in your pics reminds me of the fog I ran in on the SoCal coast a week ago (there's a picture of it on my blog). Anyways, your blog is very entertaining!

Happy Birthday! Looks like a fun ride. I liked seeing your pictures... brought back good memories! I used to live in Healdsburg and did lots of riding around that area... HWY 128 was one of my favorites for a long ride. :)
