When it hit about 7:15pm, we went into DUSK mode. We turned on all the rear flashing tail lights, Frankenbutt’s flashing helmet light and the handle bar mounted flashing lights that our friend, Sheena from Canada, brought us during her retreat from the cold weather madness this past March. We pedaled on and finally arrived at the hotel @ 8:15pm. We checked in and asked for a side entrance so that we didn’t have to bring our bikes through their beautiful lobby. The Beast took the first shower while Frankenbutt walked Coco and picked up dinner for us at the fast food restaurant just in front of the hotel. I opted for a Caesar salad with chicken; Frankenbutt and the Beast had the standard burgers and fries. It all tasted great!
I also called Jason from the Palm Bay BMX track and we set up a plan to meet and hopefully get some publicity for the great stuff he is doing with the riders at his track. He sounds like a progressive thinker and more of what we need in our sport. We are looking forward to meeting up and exchanging ideas.
That’s all for tonight! Time to enjoy the comfortable bed! It is nice to not have to set up a tent.
