As the Sheik and YHC gathered, The sheik putting together the vast assemblage of his gear, another fellow Gear Head pulled up, Welcome Ricky Bobby( He wants to go fast); a tomato walked up with yoga matt in hand to whisper to the Gear heads to please respect the neighbors. The Sheik and YHC looked at one another, both wondering, Are all the neighbors above 50? Politely shrugging our shoulders went back straight back into welcoming Ricky Bobby to the RAMM Gears fold. Ricky Bobby held his own keeping up with YHC and the Sheik, Ricky Bobby was riding a standard mountain bike.
The Sheik decided that the ride needed a small fireworks display, and timed it just as the PAX was on Libbie to release his headlight into the spokes of his front wheel. The display was epic; although the celebration was short lived when the Sheik realized that his headlight was no longer functional. Unfortunately, the Route took the PAX into Dark Territory along Malvern north of Broad. Ricky Bobby and YHC managed to light the way and keep the Sheik reasonably safe.
Upon Return down grove the PAX caught up with several of the RAMM regulars, The Sheik using some serious stealth maneuvers managed to wake up most to the Fan area.
In celebration of a safe trip home, YHC shared a few Cuban cigars with the fellow Gear Heads to take home.
Several PAX members mentioned some upcoming Running events, BLAH BLAH BLAH, etc.
Lab Rat encouraged people to come out and see the Dog Jumping competition at River Rocks.
