Dinner at the Tilted Kilt in Watertown

Posted by mvrnpa on June 24, 2011

Here's Rich enjoying himself at the Tilted Kilt

Sometimes things happen for reasons that we just can’t explain. For example, we had Rich Conely and Brian Six from the Beer Path Cycling Club join us on our Marcellus to Watertown leg our our ride.   This was the longest ride either on these guys have done to date-a total of 104.5 miles with an average speed of 17.5 mph.

Great job guys!  We look forward to riding with you next year!
As a way to say “Thanks”, Rich took us to the Tilted Kilt ( in Watertown.  Not sure how Rich knows about this fine eating establishment, but let’s just say the food wasn’t the only thing that was good.  I must admit, after spending 6 hours in the saddle with the sun beating down on your back, it was refreshing to sit and watch….um, the BIG screen TVs.  Actually, the food was really good and beer was cold and refreshing.  All in all, it was a fitting end to a really nice day on bikes.
Tomorrow we have a stop at the Jefferson County SPCA then it’s off to Ogdensburg!

Ride On!

Day 2 is in the books!

Posted by mvrnpa on June 22, 2011

Despite the gutter-busting downpours, bolts of lightning and crashes of thunder; we made it to the Vacation Inn in Union Dale, PA. Viktor rode alone from Moscow to Union Dale. Gary did join him for a few miles, then the rains started again and he decided to get back in the car-which by the way has proven to be more valuable than gold again this year. Thanks Ed Stillman for allowing us to use one of your Volvo XC90’s as our support vehicle this year.
After washing down the bikes and getting cleaned up, we are planning on heading out for some dinner and a few frosty beverages.
More to follow….
