The Slender Fungus Reunites again

Mid november and good friend Frank was able to get a group ride together. The plan was to meet in St. Charles and make it to Wisconsin and back. Around a 100 mile trip. I stayed at the mom-in-laws on Saturday Night and had pizza, wine and mass amounts of Storage and Parking Wars. I then drove to Sycamore and rode the Great Western Trail to St. charles. I met everyone there. Two of my Slender Fungus Guys were there waiting. T.J and Gumby. We rode up to Crystal Lake and turned around while the rest of the group continued. It was a very windy day and the singlespeed really cooked my legs. We came back, loaded up and headed back to the corn. We stopped at a DQ and had some tasty food. Now you can get a cheeseburger, Drink, fries and a blizzard for 5 bucks. How can you beat that. At halfway point we intercepted Cookie and his Boss Bob. It was a great day on the bike and I was really happy to ride with good friends. Total for the day was 80 miles with a righteous 35mph wind coming out of the south.
On another note. Cookie, Giggles and I are on the Trans Iowa list and hope to be toeing the line come April.
best, ARI

It is great to see that the SF has reunited again. Hope to see all, (or most of you), this coming April!(If not before then)

My crew goes beyond just being riding buddies. They are loyal and will be there, ready, whenever the need comes. I am very grateful for that.
