Breaking tradition we skipped the stop at the fountain, and headed straight up the South Hill. Well, not exactly straight. We zigged over to Adams to take a less difficult, but still easy to follow route. Adams is my favorite way to get up there with the exception of a few blocks at the top. Without hundreds of riders behind you, it's easy to pick your way around the harder stuff with a half dozen right/lefts. Finding High Drive, we followed that all the way over to Hatch, 57th and finally made it to Famous Ed's at 57th and Regal.
Mark and his buddies from David's Pizza have taken over at the former Hangar 57, and have made some vast improvements. One of which is adding David's Pizza to the menu. The staff went nuts making sure everyone was served and served well. I can't thank Mark and his staff for making the Back To School Ride a success. Mark and I have some plans cooking already for upcoming rides.
As for all the Lifetime Members For Life, I was excited to see how many of you came out for a longer, uppier route. Thanks for coming out.
150+ riders; 55º and remarkable.
