What do you do when the family's away?

Here's what I did:

1) Went on a group ride at 6:30 p.m. Normally I'll ride during the day or in the a.m. and reserve the evenings for family. The ride turned out to be very speedy and well attended -- more on the ride on the next 2 Johns Podcast.

Here's the other John getting the lay of the land and trying to figure out which group to roll out with.

Here is Dan, the ride organizer, shouting instructions about safety, ride speed etiquette, etc... It all went out the window after about 10k's. Yes, that is a whistle around his neck (more about that on the next podcast).

2) Return from the ride and rehydrate with some fine French Ale brewed according to Belgian tradition.

aaahhhh, there's nothing like that first sip after a fast 85k ride in the heat.

3) Eat a tomato, bleu cheese, onion, olive oil salad.

Hey, the wife's out of town. Who cares about onion breath?

4) Watch a movie that my wife would never watch.

Sophomoric, but funny. Not as much nudity as I expected though.

*I've got one more night on Bachelordom. Man Feast in my newly renovated Man Cave tonight with various teammates, pizza, poker, and more Belgian liquid gold... report tomorrow.
