||So the tradition on your birthday is to ride your age- I know what you're thinking, "she can't possibly be 35!" And no, I will not be. But 56 miles is way too far to ride and still have fun so we're doing 56 KM instead. Phew... Please join me as I commiserate and celebrate. Depending on the wind and the weather, we may head out to Grizzly Island Wildlife Area (largest contiguous estuarine marsh in the US), return to Jelly Belly (the largest jelly bean factory in the world) for a snack break, or mosey on over to the other side of the freeway for a loop around the Suisun Valley (the quieter, gentler wine country). If you know me, you know I am not wild about hills so, my birthday, my ride, my rules, it will be a true "D" day! I'll even host a wine and jelly bean tasting when we finish the ride. Hope to see you there!
