June 9-14, 2008 (including Bob LeBow metric century)

The week started out stormy and cold – not enticing to bikers. I rode on Monday anyway, at noon, and had a good ride down to Bellevue and up Broadford.

Wednesday I couldn’t get excited about another cold ride and I wimped out – even though Marsha called me to ride.

Thursday I went out late with Jim and felt much better after our ride to the top of Ohio Gulch road.

Saturday looked promising for the Terry Reilly Health Services Bob LeBow Bike Tour in Nampa. Friday was warm enough in Boise to eat dinner outside! Jim and I arrived in Nampa just in time to watch the century riders start out at 7:00 a.m. We found Laura, Karen, Lindy and friends in the parking lot and went on to park our car and get ready. Jim took this picture just before we took off at 8:00.

Bob LeBow ride in Nampa, Idaho

The first hour went fairly fast. We stopped in Melba – just past the “Two Hole Saloon” for the first rest stop. Then the wind picked up for our ride down to the Snake River and up to Marsing. Everyone was cussing that wind! It was warm and sunny, though. Around Marsing the wind died down and we had a good ride past Lake Lowell and back into Nampa.

They had the lunch organized much better than it was last year. Overall it was a fun ride and I was glad I participated. It is a for a good cause and it is fun to see so many bikers out enjoying themselves – on all kinds of bikes, recumbents and tandems.
