Yesterday was the Wind Dancers’ annual holiday and awards party. I believe there were ten of us there, and it was a lot of fun.
The high-mileage contest was close for 2005 — I came in 2nd place by only 613 miles! Doh! The woman who came in 1st place, Elizabeth, is a retired teacher and touring dynamo, however, so I really don’t think I even had a chance. *laughs*
But I got this nifty plaque!
I’m continuing to look foward to being an integral member of the club this year. Maybe it’s because I know I’m not doing any solo multi-week trips in 2006, but I feel myself drawn to group events more than I have for the past couple of years — maybe not necessarily group riding, but more mutual destinations and hanging out with like-minded people.
We’ve already got eleven fun-sounding day rides in the works for the Wind Dancers in 2006, plus our annual weekend rally (and maybe a couple of overnight trips tossed in, too).
Lots of fun rides, fun girlfriends to ride with, and a new bike…life is good.
