This past weekend Kristine and I participated in a cool ride called The Pirate Ride. This is a semi-underground ride where a large group of mountain bikers get together, dress up like pirates (and wenches of course) and ride. Well there’s a little drinking thrown in also to spice things up. After all it wouldn’t be a pirate ride without some rum! Arrghhh!
This year the event was so popular it was covered by the Orange County Register. The ride, and the party was alot of fun. But the fun was marred by two crashes when we headed down the hills back to the cars. Our friend Brenda dislocated her elbow and we had to take her to the hospital. Another friend, Vickie, crashed and ended up getting a black eye.
