As with any ride, Team Mang/Aling spreads the joy of cycling with everyone - we ran into a couple of cyclists who just rode with us for a while, enjoying our company. Hopefully, they'll join us for future rides. Another lady approached us from nowhere - saw us riding on the road and probably thought, "Hey, that looks like a fun group." and left us contact info to let them know when our next ride will be. Maybe she and her husband will join us in the future.
We got a bit separated on the way home with the first group whizzing through, a second group sticking together with Bob's hurting knee and Edgar's flat, and the third group missing a right turn and taking a different route back. The ride took exactly 7 hours, including those food breaks, regroups and picture taking. The party concludes, of course, at Pho Hoang in Renton where we were joined by hard working Cris!
Thanks to everyone for joining this ride.
