Last Saturday was the second ride of the Cantian ryders. We decided this time that we wanted a fast ride for part of the time, so we rode 10 miles south on the Lake Shore past with Jaun, then 10 miles North. Bill and I had a rpetty interesting discussion about politics and religion during that time, specifically about some fo the recent debates on BOL. Then we dropped off Jaun, who had done very well for his second ride, and zoomed up to Evanston. And I mean zoomed. We were going 19-21 mph most of the time, which is absolutely cruising on a bike. We stopped in Evanston for lunch at Jamba Juice and PotBelly's sandwiches. John was able to get a 20% discount at Jamba with his NW student ID, which was very nice. After about 30 minutes we had finished our sandwiches and poured wht was left of our smoothies into our water bottles and headed north again, still going at a very fast rate, even though the hills and ravines in Highland Park. We were all really feeling "the burn" for the last 15 miles though, but that's what we love about biking; you don't bike to have fun, you bike for pain. Anyway, we got to the Swee's about 4:00, and then we all played 007 on their gamecube for an hour till my dad picker me up. Joe is very good, but it the QJet and Qclaw are on I can still draw even with him. And my accuracy is better than anyone's. Anyway, very fun day.
