On May 3rd we had a terrific ride! The forecast was for rain about 40-60% at different times during the day, but we were truly blessed in that the rain held off until we were back home and parked in the garage. It has taken me a while to get the photos downloaded for the camera and then an article written, but I won’t bore you with all of those details. It seems like as summer gets here there just is not enough time in the day to get everything done that needs to be done along with all that you want to do. I have also taken video of the ride and the fun later in the day, but do not have a video editor so I am still working on that.

This was taken right after we arrived around 1030 in the morning. As you can see quite a few had already gathered by the time our group of four joined them. (We had ridden about 60 miles to just get to Beckley, WV)

United Cycle of Beckley sponsored the run for us and Daniels Bible Church provided a great facility for us to gather and also eat lunch.

Mark Morgan the current president of the Thunder & Praise CMA Chapter was the day’s Road Captain as there were several CMA chapters involved in the run. Mark had several capable assistants to which we were all very grateful as we had a wonderful ride with no mishaps.

The narrow two lane road was very busy with lots of traffic and plenty of curves to keep all of the riders alert.

After taking many, many curves we stopped for a quick break.

I went around trying to count how many bikes we actually had on the run and after counting three times and coming up with three different numbers I gave up. We know there were some where around 30 bikes at the break, but some had not followed the group and had gone back to set up for lunch so the number back at the building was even more.

If I had know my husband was going to snap the photo right then I could have smiled instead of grimaced!

Back to the parking lot..waiting for lunch.

Lunch was great…pizza, fresh veggies & fruit, cookies, brownies, sodas, water & coffee! Thanks United Cycle!!! Lots of great gospel music was provided by the bluegrass band too.

I have decided that I need to find someone else other than my husband to take photos when I want another perspective at an event. He never seems to get one of me smiling…he always waits until the worst possible moment!

Anyway we had a great time and I hope you enjoy seeing a bit of what our day was like. If I get the videos into a decent format soon I will post them. And I do have photos to post soon of my newly finished paint job on my bike.

Thanks for reading!
