Five at breakfast this morning.  After I passed Lynn and Daniel gave chase to Larry, I wound up soloing that lap.  And I couldn't keep up with Larry and Daniel on the next.  That one saw a semi trailer come over into our lane on a curve, menacing me and a wedgie I was passing.  Larry rode with me on the third lap.  With the pre-lap, that gave me 43 miles for the day.

TODAY - CLOWN RIDE:
Woke up early enough so decided to head over to the lake this morning. Did 25 miles then went for breakfast at Barbec's with Jay, Kenny, Ken, and Bob. Had originally planned on 4 laps after breakfast but decided to save something for the night ride (and avoid trail morons) so I capped it at 3+ laps and will do another 30 miles later if it doesn't rain.

Wednesday night - Wednesday abCd with PBA from Spring Creek and Coit:
Poteet is definitely a better ride due to very few traffic lights or stops. This ride is a ton of traffic lights. We did get some light rain and a wind shift with the passage of the cold front but the rain wasn't enough to even wet the pavement. Pablo came out on the C ride with his velomobile. That was a surprise as I expected him to be on his trike. But he only stayed for a little more than half the ride. I'd been hearing noise coming from the seat bag during the ride. I decided that was because I didn't have spare clothing in there. At the end of the ride I found out the real reason - bag was completely unzipped! Fortunately, it didn't seem as though anything important fell out but wallet, phone, and car keys were at risk owing to that little oversight!

Tuesday night - Poteet ride:
Joined the night ride with James, Wes, Jenny, Dean, and Melinda. Rode the 2-wheel recumbent with the dynamo wheel on front and had good front light with no worry about the battery as it is leg power and hub generator that powers it. Balmy air was the incentive to ride. This time of year, one must take advantage of balmy air!

Saturday afternoon - Garland / Sunnyvale / Mesquite:
Did an afternoon ride with Jenny. We again left from Garland taking the bike path over to Barnes Bridge. We couldn't do the full loop as she needed to be finished by 3 PM. If I hadn't done this ride, I probably would have skipped a ride.

My last purchase.....I hope.....will be a fat trike. Utah Trikes has one for 1800 bucks. I have too many bikes. So I'll put some of these up for sale for $1800 each. You've all read "The Art of the Deal", haven't you? Let's deal. Here they are:
 
--Rans Screamer tandem recumbent with Draftmaster carrier.
 
--HP Velo StreetMachine
 
--Schlitter Encore
 
--Catrike Expedition
 
Please don''t expect them to be in showroom condition. I ride my bikes and trikes--as hard as I can.
 
Oh, or I'll trade any of the above for a fat trike!

Four at breakfast this morning, including prodigal Richard R.  Larry, Jim, Butch, Mark and Ken III were down by the water.  Then Lynn arrived, and, later, John and Heidi.  I awoke late and only got a partial lap before eating, then did four laps, three with Larry, for 51 miles.
