A Happy Birthday - Rise Again! - CycleBlaze

A Happy Birthday

As the latest pain killer and antibiotic prescriptions wind toward their last days,  Dodie is out on her bike again. The target, just like on a "real" bike ride, is a coffee shop. In our case, it's called the Drumroaster. It's really an excellent place, that roasts its own coffee and has a small but decent selection of baked goods. The distance to Drumroaster is 6 km. If you make it, and like Dodie - don't like coffee, then you get their "Hugs and Kisses" tea drink, and a "Chunky Monkey" chocolate and nut muffin.   Hopefully restored, it's then 6 km to home.  So that's 12 km total.  So what?  So 12 km is a big deal!

Hugs and Kisses and Chunky Monkey

Dodie actually first achieved this once last week.   But today was a bit special, because it was her birthday. What a good bike-y way to celebrate. The theme was topped off by a birthday card from sister Karyn. It's a great one, isn't it!

Happy Birthday!

After "Hugs and Kisses", Dodie is ready to try to make it back home. She can expect to "pay" for the ride with a lot of tightness in the knee. But tomorrow, she will be back out again (probably).

Kathleen ClassenHappy Birthday and congratulations on the ride Dodie! Drumroaster is one of our favourite stops. Keith will be there tomorrow and I suspect he will go for the cinnamon brioche. By the way, many of the best people are born in October. You, me and Keith hehe.
