Title: Pleasant Sunday morning ride
Post by: ohiorider on May 02, 2021, 11:37:43 AM
May 2nd, 2021 - Greek Easter

Took a short ride East on SR 303, which has a surprising nice surface. Worked my way to Burton, then a different route home, through the lovely downtown of Chagrin Fall, Ohio.  Once parked, I jogged dodging traffic across the street to Starbucks, ordered a coffee and a tiny tray containing two egg whites with red pepper mixed in.  Took my breakfast outside and stood on the bridge overlooking the falls on the Chagrin River, at least 60-65' below the railing. 

Lovely morning, sunny and 70 degrees.  The gaggle of Harleys usually parked in front of Starbucks was no where to be seen, maybe too early.  They were named the 'Latte Gang' several years ago in the small town paper.  Fortunately, there was no absence of lovely ladies, many walking their dogs, accompanied with well-mannered children.

I am not used to the phone camera yet, so this pic doesn't halfway spell out how nice it was this morning.  Good enough you'll get the idea.

Well, off to cut some of the grass, clean up, and head to a good friend's house to celebrate Greek Easter.  She cooks equally as well as her mom did, so I'm looking forward to some fine Greek cuisine!

My contribution ..... a bottle of 5 Star Metaxa.

Happy Greek Easter to those of you who celebrate it!

Bob

Yes, it was indeed a nice day. Rode the Milano down to the skydiving club to see my daughter do her second AFF jump. Too windy so she didn't jump. There were some experienced people who did go up so we watched them for a bit. One guy had a wing suit. I was astounded about the amount of time he stayed up before he deployed his chute.

Art met me there riding his Eldo. We took off from there and rode a number of country roads. Nice ride. I'm pleased with the suspension upgrade I invested in. Kudos to Hamlin Cycle!

Upon arrival home, I got the lawn cut before the next few days of rain being called for.

All in all, a good day.
