We started with an iffy weather day and other issues. However, somehow the weather was in our favor. There was no rain and the temperature was moderate and a little muggy.

In the beginning it looked like our party was going to be dispersed because nobody could drive to the designated meeting place/parking lot because the town of High Bridge was having a block party that blocked it. Somehow just by chance or via a few cell calls, we all managed to meet at another parking lot. It appeared to me early on that nothing was going to prevent this event from happening. Some people came with bike racks on their cars or SUV’s. Lee Desantis came on his motorcycle, mountain bike in tow.

We had the usual problems. Every year at least one person has to get a flat tire. This year was no exception. Wendy Brescia got a flat. However, after watching people line up to help repair her tire, two questions came to mind. How many people does it take to change a tire and how many possible male suitors can Wendy handle?  It was quite amusing to watch one guy hold the tire up in the air as another guy held the tube in the tire and yet another guy pumped the tire. Of course you had the supervisors or back seat drivers, including yours truly who gave their input. But more important the tire repair held up, much to my surprise, thanks to Lee Desantis’s duck tape. From what I hear, Lee never goes anywhere without his duck tape.

After our bike ride most of the riders went to the Circa Restaurant to enjoy good food and grog. Craig Desantis did an excellent job of coordinating this event and deserves recognition for his contribution to the club.

As president, I want to encourage other members to step forth and talk to me about an event they would like to organize. Our club has reached spectacular new levels because so many people have donated their valuable time and expertise to the club. Isn’t that what it is all about?
