St. Paul Bike Classic 2014

This will be the year of the sub-par gluten free brownie for me.  Ming said it was very good.  It was so-so.  He can deny it, but he's now got old man bitter-treat taste buds.

We finished up in about 2 hours.  That was a quick ride.  Doesn't seem that quick, but for some mountain bikes/sport bikes in the mix and some stop-go, it was darn quick.  Here were are: me, Larry, Erik, Ming, and Alan.  It was nice to have Erik back after a long hiatus.

I tried to shoot ahead to get some pictures at one point, running along at 20 mph on my bike with some guys on road bikes.  I didn't get very far ahead and it was tiring, having not biked a longer distance in a month and a half, but it was far enough for a few photos.

Ming and Erik at the top of what's sort of the last hill, right before Como Park.

Larry - same hill (see the tree?), giving the wave.

Larry biked with this guy.  They coordinated shirt colors before the ride so they'd look like a team.

Woo!  Woo!  CRUSHING IT!  Same hill, but with some posing.

Alan was too fast, so I couldn't get a picture of him on the hill.  But here is at our usual post-ride breakfast haunt, The St. Clair Broiler.  For as long as I can remember, he's worn the same orange Pub and Putt shirt on the ride.  This year he was out to confuse me.  He admitted to considering it.
