Memorial day; Doing a road ride with Mike.
Today is Memorial Day in the United States, and most of us have the day off. While having an extra day off from work is always nice, I sincerely hope my fellow Americans will join me in giving thanks to all the brave men and women who serve, and who have served, in our armed forces.
While I wish we lived in a world where no one had to put his or her life on the line to protect our way of life, that’s not the reality we live in. I have the highest respect for the men and women who bravely serve our country, many of whom have paid the ultimate price. Thank you.
I’m heading out early for a ride with my buddy Mike, who I somehow conned into doing a road ride with me. Since we both have the day off from work, we’re planning to do at least a metric century (100 kilometers). Looks like the high today is only going to be around 86° (F), so that’s pretty good riding weather considering it’s practically June.
Have a good day everyone.
