The cool weather today added comfort to a very pleasing ride with my friend John. John rode his classic 1978 Mercian lugged steel frame road bike. My lugged steel frame bike is only 20 years old but I like to think it's a classic too. No fast paced riding. Just an enjoyable low cadence casual ride over quite roads on hills from Helotes, TX, to the Starbucks in Leon Springs, TX. We chatted over a cup of coffee outdoors for about 30 minutes before cruising the 10 miles back to Helotes. Great company and great weather to clear the mind and leave the mad world, if only for a short time.
