road bike: afternoon ride, flat tire repair clinic #2 & potluck social

Let's have a nice, mellow ride and potluck social to ease into the biking season. And if you missed Pat's class on Thursday night, here is another chance to practice how to repair a flat tire, a skill we're all likely to need sometime this summer :-(. First we'll gather at Robert's house to stash goodies for the post-ride meal. Then we'll head off on our mostly flat 20 mile NTD bike ride. We'll ride it at a slow to moderate pace. Don't want to work TOO hard early in the season :-). After we get back, we'll have a little hands-on flat tire repair clinic in the parking lot across the street (bring your tire repair tools). Say-maybe some of you ladies who learned from Pat just a couple of days before can come and show the rest of us how to do it! And finally, for the potluck, bring whatever you like: main course, appetizers, salads, dessert, whatever. It is, after all, a potluck. I'll probably have some stew simmering away in my crockpot while we're off on our ride. Antelope stew, I think. Hope to see you there!
