We had a great holiday weekend full of bike riding, music, food, volunteering, fireworks & more bike riding! And you couldn’t ask for better weather either! Hated to see it end!

I won VIP tickets to see Exile & Lou Gramm at Summer Motion in Ashland, Ky on July 4th. It topped off a great day that started with a 25 mile solo bike ride that morning, then a cookout later on that afternoon and then finally an evening of music & fireworks.

Saturday, July 5th, we went back to Ashland in the morning to volunteer for the ACE Time Trial race for Homeless Veterans. We followed that up with a visit to our friends DeNeil & Paul’s home to see the progress they’ve made on remodeling their home. Then it was a nice ride through Wayne National Forest home for a nap!

Sunday I went to ride the Summer Motion Bicycle Tour with my buddy Kevin. We were joined by another ACE club member, Tammie. The ride went pretty well except for Kevin’s unfortunate luck. The skewer on his rear wheel broke about half-way through the ride and he had get a SAG ride back to the start. Really sorry he missed the big climb back into Greenbo State Park! Tammie & I finished the ride. It was a great time!
