Tuesday Night "Follow the Big Blue Tandem" Ride

For the past two weeks I've been trying to get people out to "follow the big blue tandem" on the road. I think the possibility of a storm that was "close" when we started the ride may have hurt numbers.

Laura and I met up with Cindy L. at Bike Plus (our LBS) and rode to Elk Point and back. It was a great ride at a 'decent' pace and we felt the ever-so-slight sprinkles from the storm that was on the Nebraska side of the river. The storm stayed on that side of the river (as well as many nasty looking radar blips) so we were golden.

It was a low attendance ride, but we had fun without others. So there.

Weird clouds from outside our house after our return. Didn't amount to anything, but they were kind of bizarre.

Nice blog. That storms looks like it could have done some damage to a group of cyclists. Glad it stayed away.

P.S. Love Dilbert!

I can't tell if that's grey clouds behind those funny-looking white ones or sky. If it's the former, then those are mammatus (sp?) and they indicate areas of unstable air right before a storm. I think they get their name from a resemblance to a certain woman's body part. Aren't you glad I shared taht with you?
