Project Rwanda Ride with Leslie and the Bretts

This weekend we rode the Project Rwanda Benefit – the Fifty Mile Ride – in Orange County. We hooked up with some great people, hit some hills pretty hard, and had a great time. Brendan and I were hoping to meet up with our friend Lucas, but couldn’t find him. So, we started the ride and ran in to some other friends along the way.

Leslie Williams – aka, the Niner girl – and a couple Bretts kept us rolling along at a good clip. We didn’t know the Bretts well before the ride, but ended up hammering each other on the ride and enjoying a beer together afterwards. This is one event that I’d highly recommend. The people were great and even though they had to recreate the course because of the fires – the 50 miles of urban trails, kept us entertained.

    I am glad that you guys had fun! I am super bummed that I couldn’t make it. Brendan’s white Song looks great! How is the new Gortex wear working?

    You have the best weekends, you make me jealous! Polliwoggy is Dave Thompsons’s wife. Her blog is “Memoirs of a Polliwogg”, linked off my site. It’s cool to see another cook/baker. Her stuff’s more complex than mine, it’s neat.

    Looks like a fun ride…tried to make it last year, but we were having too much fun in Malibu.

    Q: “Who does #002 work for?”

    #001 = CO = BLL
    #002 = CA = BES
