LBL 2011 Recap

The day began with eDLiNDa's killer egg casserole, now renamed "DiRK's casserole".

Unfortunately, BRiMaN was not feeling very well, so he had to bow out- he was sorely missed!

With the small turnout, the meet & greet was short & we hit the road.

The group, ready for the challenge (maybe)!

New route this year, highlighting Lincoln's Antelope Creek trail & then Salt Creek & Bison. Here's a shot in the Bottoms, this street reminds me of Europe- tight.

We had some limestone in this year's route, on the way out of Lincoln. It's really relaxing to not have to worry about cars. The KeRNeL & DiRk took this trail back from Cortland & raved about how nice it was. There's a good possibility this will be the path we take to Mecca next year.

It wouldn't be a bike ride, without a flat, so eDDy LeE graciously agreed to be the victim.
The stop at Spilker's was relatively short, for once. The wind was brisk, and we faced a stiff headwind on the way back. Everyone was looking forward to getting back, to feast on eDLinDa's French Dip Sandwiches & drinking Hopluia!
I think I caught a glimpse of the Gates of Heaven!The trip back was rather uneventful; just a steady pull against the wind. Overall,it was a great day- a good time with great friends. Thanks to everyone that joined in on the fun! Next up- ScHnOcToBeeRFesT!
