It had been quite a while since we led or participated in a group ride. Dan found a Meetup group for riding couples and scheduled an event before we left on the Epic Adventure. That was yesterday, which ended up being an absolutely gorgeous day. There were four bikes, we rode 141 miles, had a great brunch at Los Tios Grill in Leesburg, and crossed back into MD on White’s Ferry.
Yesterday was our 10th wedding anniversary. Saturday evening we took advantage of DC Restaurant Week and had a fantastic dinner at Vidalia. On Sunday we went to the International Motorcycle Show in DC. D wanted to get a new pair of custom ear plugs, then we wandered around to check out the people, bikes, and vendors. D bought me flowers, a card, and an engraved bracelet; we still have some chocolate covered strawberries to enjoy.
So it was a very nice weekend, especially considering the fact that just a few days before both of us were in bed sick with the flu.
