CLC 2019, #7: Leif Erickson Drive

I win!  Heh, heh.  It’s the old hidden ride trick.  I’ve been hiding my seventh ride, hoping that it would lull G-2 into a false sense of overconfidence. Oldest trick in the book.

We had another fantastic riding day today, with full sun and a high near seventy.  Probably not the natural place to go to Leif Erickson Drive and bike through a tunnel of green today, but one gets tired of the same old volcanoes day after day and a change of scene was welcome.

Don’t be confused by the link, btw – it’s the same as for ride #6.  I bundled them into the same post, but they’re different rides on different days.

Sorry, G-2 and company.  Maybe next time.

This is just a placeholder for now. I’ll add a real description when I get more time.

    Great Scott, that was a sneaky last post and G-2 got pipped . Greg’s been looking a little grumpy of late too, could his ‘Minnesota Niceness’ be fading with this last humiliation.

      Pipped – that would be an Aussie term? New to me, but you owe me a few new words anyway as I recall.

      I don’t see any change in Greg – he’s always looked a bit grumpy, don’t you think? It’s probably that harsh Midwest climate, or maybe just the company he keeps. I’m sure if he could just dump that pest G-2 he’d be much happier.

        You guys must not have realized I got my account back. I got my Minnesota Nice back too. And I don’t think you should be calling my good friend and alter-ego a “pest.” He’s a fine, upstanding cartoon character and I might agree that he got pipped–if I knew for sure what that meant.

          You’re right, Greg. My heartfelt apologies to your toon buddies for my rash choice of words. A weak moment, which I deeply regret.

    Didn’t realize that you don’t use this expression in US
