The Bike-a-thon was a huge success, more than 3/4 of the team was there and there were lots of brothers & sisters, Moms & Dads that made the 15 mile trek. Getting underway at 1721 with Mabel Plesse at the helm the fleet of bicycles and riders were off. They had stops at the playground and when they got to Los Gatos got a treat at Coldstone ice cream shoppe. There were only minor propulsion related casualties, simple chains falling off that went right back on. No flat tires and no crashes. No pedals falling off like last year…
The outbound trip took somewhere around an hour and twenty minutes. The trip back went much faster, probably due to the sugar high induced by the ice cream and the downhill decent. The total trip was done in about two hours.
After reaching home base, the fleet was portaged back to the Lawrence’s where the kids all jumped in the pool. Pizza, chips and all the usual yummy and fun foods were served. As the evening cool settled in Prometheus was kind enough to provide us with the gift of fire. Jim followed his instructions diligently and we had a beauty.
