Wild Hogs

Kindra and DL are riding their bicycles today from Houston to Austin, Texas in the MS150 benefit ride.  They will actually accumulate about 167 miles when they finish on Sunday.  I am praying for no winds, no accidents and much strength.  I will let you know how they manage the ride. 

Dave and a group of friends rode their bicycles in the Kansas City area MS150 for at least 10 years in a row.  However, somthing happened that changed this respectable looking group of 40 year olds……

into this questionable looking group of 50 year olds.

They are still riding two wheelers, but have powered them up a bit.

This group has traveled far and wide, they have been to Colorado, Wyoming, Utah and South Dakota (Sturgis, of course). 

 They designated a navigator and sent out a scout.

They have seen amazing sites such as this….

and this……

and this…….

and even this….

They have slept and dined in luxurious accommodations,

This morning with the temperature at 38 degrees they once again donned their leathers and rode off into the sunrise towards Oklahoma.  I just hope they do not talk Dave into anything crazy like the last time they rode.  He came home with a sleeveless shirt that showed off his “IT(information technology) arms”.

Hopefully I won’t see any PC or Star Trek tatoos this time!

  1. I can’t believe you would share that picture of dad with the world! How embarassing!

  2. If this was facebook, I would like that comment…

  3. Thanks for sharing these pictures! We survived the MS 150 and aren’t as sore as we thought we’d be. Although, my legs were sore enough that I discovered that the parking garage at work has a steeper incline than I remember. I still can’t believe we biked from Houston to Austin! We will have to recruit Dad to join us in a future ride. 🙂
