My friends and I completed yet another Apple Cider Century bike ride. I’ve rode every year since 1986; 34 years straight. Eric Claeys has only missed riding a couple years; Jacques and Marianne missed a couple more. This year was scheduled to be a rain-fest, but the weather magically cleared up during the night for a beautiful morning of riding. I rode 50 miles over 2 days. I’m shooting for 50 straight years, but will have to depend on my health and home location in the coming years. I rode the shortest of the bunch and completed a shorter route (30 miles) since Susan did not ride and we had to travel to Grand Rapids that day for her fathers memorial service a couple of days later. I miss Dick already. Eric C, Jacques and Marianne were on track to ride the 50 mile route. Congratulations to them!
