Today is Scott's birthday. It has been pretty low key. A late start to the coffee ride, a saunter home. Chores.
I figure the insurance company has come through with the best present, a new bike to replace his damaged one. I can't compete with that so why would I. He's been missing his perfect ride, and I hope to see him back in cycling nirvana before I leave on Friday.
We will have a party tomorrow.
A sunset cruise on the Ross River dam, my usual safe cycling destination. It should be lovely.
Champagne, nice food, the majestic hills of this most familiar place seen from a new perspective. Our friends are looking forward to it. We are all heading off into the sunset together, and it looks like quite a ride.
