2014-01-20 Sharon’s Ranchman

Group ride out to the Ponder steakhouse. Good company. Sharon, Jim Fitzgerald, Kathy and Jim Burmeister, Mark Solow, Josh Davis (me), Theresa, and one other lady who’s name I’ve not memorized.

Everyone got the Coconut pie except for me. This is what the coconut pie looks like at Ranchman’s:

Kathy gave me a bite and it was really tasty. I should have ordered my own slice and suffered the overfull belly. It had shredded coconut in the pudding-like filling. Though, I learned that if it’s a pie without a top crust, it’s a tart. If it’s a tart with a merengue top, what is that? I dunno. The lunch special was Chicken Fried Steak, with the lunch portion only 4oz, which was exactly the perfect size. Normal half-size is 6oz, which was a little much last time.

On the way back, the train stopped and blocked us, but it was only half a mile to the next crossing.

Theresa and the other lady have full group pictures at the train tracks, but we didn’t otherwise think to get a group picture. OOps!

Kathy was riding a borrowed CrossCheck. Great bike, but either the indexing was off a little, the chain was acting up (never lubed), or the return spring on the 105 was failing (also not lubed).

But, she was sold on road geometry, and now that her husband will be able to ride with us more, she’ll need her own bike. :)

By the end, Sharon was just warmed up, and we were all worn out. It was a hard push on Chinn Chapel RD. It was a really good ride.
