On Monday, we said goodbye to Sarah, Matt, and Mason, headed back to Alexandria, the last of our Florida guests. Since then we have ridden the tandem three times (30.39 miles, 28.76 miles and 28.52 miles). Just to prove to myself that I could, I rode my single for 64.73 miles on Wednesday (4/1) around Lake Panasoffeskee. It was the longest ride of my training, with plenty of headwind, tailwind, and trucks (best training for the ride ahead). I also rode 17.1 “commuter” miles on Thursday, delivering paperwork in Lake Sumter Landing and riding to church for Maundy Thursday service.
On my long ride, I did some Dolly-gagging along the way – even rescued a turtle that decided it needed to cross a busy street.
This morning we rode our last time with The Villages tandem group. At times, we have had as many as 10 teams riding, today was just the “loyal” five teams.
At the end of our ride, I took this photo of Don in front of our villa, 1928 Montrose Court.
And, finally we went to O Shucks for steamed oysters and fried shrimp! Next we pack up the car…
