As I walked out of my house kicking myself for not warming up the car on this frigid Sunday morning, all I could think was, “It’s too cold for this.” I sat in the Rastelli’s parking lot with the seat warmer and heat on and I looked at the temperature…37 degrees. “It’s too cold for this.” More and more teammates showed up and I got out of my warm car donned in numerous layers. “It’s too cold for this.”
We had a smaller group than in the past few weeks; many probably had the same thoughts I did. But once we got going and started chatting with our friends, laughing and smiling, the cold didn’t matter anymore. I’m glad I didn’t give into my creature comforts. Scott Downie once again gave us two awesome, scenic routes and we had a great ride. The lessons I learned today? Go anyway. Don’t let the cold get to you. The connections you’ll make with your friends will always be worth it.
In life, it’s not where you go, but who you ride with.
This Saturday, join us at the memorial service for our friend, Dave Bennis to celebrate his life. It will be held at the Marlton Field House from 2-4pm. [NOTE: Please be considerate to the health and safety of those around you when you attend. It is imperative that we all wear masks and maintain a social distance of 6 feet or more.]
Sunday, Oct 25th, we will host the Ian Cameron Memorial Ride to remember another friend who touched so many lives. We’ve invited our fellow cyclists from Summit and Cynergy to ride with us that morning. Please join us at Rastelli’s.
See you next week!
