4th of July

Had a great weekend of riding and tons of time with family and friends over the long weekend. Thursday I went into work late and got in a good 50 mile ride in the morning with Jeremy, Peter, and my dad. We decided to use that route for our 4th of July ride from the shop as well. I was stoked when I showed up to the shop the next morning for the ride to see 32 people there ready to go ride. We rode the 40 mile loop, and while we were gone my brother-in-laws grilled out for us. Great ride and great weather all weekend long. Saturday morning I rode down to my cousins farm in Butler, MO. 85ish miles straight south into a constant headwind. It was a nice ride though, very scenic and I had never ridden those parts. Kathy drove down to meet me and spend some time with that side of the family. Saturday evening we went to our farm in lathrop with Levi and the dogs. It was the first time the dogs had been up there with decent weather where they could just run around. We stayed the night, shot some fireworks, had a big fire, ate a big breakfast then came home. The dogs slept all day on Sunday.
I leave tomorrow for Park City, Utah for the Cannondale dealer trade show. 4 days of riding and playing on all the new toys. Apparently, Ivan Basso is leading a group ride on Thursday, so that should be interesting. I'll be back Saturday with a full report.
