I was nervous for this years Fruitapalooza. Yes, I’d already done it, but this year I felt like I was even more out of shape and unprepared – EVEN THOUGH I’d done more bike rides and worked out more to prepare. Such is life and getting older I guess.
Thankfully, the weekend was a success. The crew we went with had all biking abilities (mine on the lower end), and I had NO problem with taking easier trails (PBR and Kessel) to ensure I didn’t kill myself. Yes, the same scrapes and bruises all happened, but that’s part of the fun, right?
Late April, early May seemed to be perfect timing as far as weather went. Hot when the sun was high, but nice and fairly cool in the evenings. It was nice to get out of the city for an extended weekend, and with 22 peeps (including 2 under the age of 2) and 16 pups…it doesn’t get much better than that.
Can’t wait to see what next year brings.
