5-Borough Bike Ride


"He's definitely got my back," said the father of the son. Both completed the 40-mile tour together, along with 32,000 other riders. My friend and I were waiting to cheer them on when they crossed out of Central Park. They waved and left us in their dust. Later, they brought home a hazelnut cake for my birthday. We didn't do the traditional birthday tequila shots, though. I told them it would be a waste as they were both pretty wiped. But their hearts were pumping nicely.

    1. Kimberly, the husband was kind of sexy in that bike gear. My son, well, he's my son, but he took care of his dad on the road, he sure did. I told him that was the best birthday gift, the way he looked out for his dad.

  9. WOAH! That is wonderful! I'm wiped after ten!!!

    PS - I am now calculating the distance between NYC and my home in the Smoky Mountains and I can be there in about 18 hours for some of that hazelnut cake.
