Every year, Citizens for a Better Eastern Shore puts on a bike ride - this year it started in Cape Charles and we had options of a 25, 40, 60 or 100 miles.
Though I've done centuries in the past, I just recently started riding again and didn't want to bite off more than I could chew, so I rode in the 25 miler with Dr. Blair Chick, the Chief Medical Officer of Eastern Shore Rural Health (and a great bike buddy!). Unfortunately I had a tire blow out (I suppose a bit of dry rot's not surprising after my bike has been in storage for a number of years).
Luckily there were representatives from a bike shop in Salisbury, so I was able to replace my tires and have various other quirks straightened out. Plus I got to do some shopping with Dr. Chick's wife Elaine.
CBES provided a really nice lunch in Oyster at the aquaculture research center, which had a dock with a great view!
Can't wait to do the ride again next year with good tires; the goal is the 100 miler with Jeff, too!
