As of Friday night, it was looking like our ride might be rained out.  Even Saturday morning, I was all ready to get drenched en route to the Art Museum , expecting to wait in vain for anyone to show up.  But though the skies were ominous, the rain was holding off.  So starting with two friends who met at my house, we snowballed across town, meeting several people at Honey’s, and more on Spring Garden St.  By the time we left, we were 13 strong, ready to brave the Ben Franklin Bridge and the Camden streets.

Though the roads were bumpy, and there was one flat, the ride wasn’t really bad at all.  A leisurely pace, traffic played nice with us, and before we knew it we were there.  We were fortunate enough to have Chris Lapierre, the head brewer of the brewpub and cyclist, on the ride with us.  Many thanks to him for several pitchers of his beer, and for a special tour of the brewery.  Other than the tour, the highlight of the afternoon (for me at least) was when Chris shared a couple bottles of sour beers he was working on.  I love sour beers, and both of these were delicious and complex.

The ride back was more of the same, only hotter.  And there was no rain on either part of the ride.  So it ended up being a great day.  About a 30 mile ride, some great beer, and awesome views of the city.  Lets do it again sometime!
