It was a busy week, leading to a busy weekend. Work has been pounding along, as it does in the spring, but this weekend worked out so that I could join Kathleen riding the Tour De Carroll up in Westminster. Saturday morning rolled around pretty cold (45 degrees) and threatening, but off we went. We took the route sheets for the 40 and 63 mile rides, which shared the same route for the first 26 miles or so. We saw lots of Carroll County, I'll let the pictures tell the story.
40 mile route, in the end it was fun, although very tiring, when it's that cold out it seems to suck the energy out of you. Then it was back to the house to run some errands then get all dressed up as Saturday night was the White House Correspondents Dinner. I handled a couple of the after-party's including the big blockbuster one for MSNBC. They turned the Italian Embassy into a disco for the evening.
Today broke with rolling out of bed about 10:30 (courtesy of Kathleen calling to let me know she was on her way home from the race she was volunteering at in Columbia) and we went in search of breakfast. Then it was noodle around the house day, until about 4:30PM when I headed out for a ride. Living in the Mid-Atlantic is weird, 40's to low 50's yesterday, 72 degrees this afternoon when I left. I headed down towards the Inner Harbor, but since the bike path is still a complete disaster area due to construction, I was forced onto the promenade to get down Pratt Street. I rolled along towards this large group, first being admonished for riding by the cop on the Segway in the foreground.
