Here is their route.
Prior to the ride, Lycra man and I invited the guys to stay for soup upon their return to our house E.T. A around 5:00 p.m.
It was much appreciated as they were cold.
Well, we thought it was cold. I read my old college roommate, now a resident of Nome Alaska's post of her solstice day.....Our low was her high.
So for all cold bike riders and snow shoveler' s, here is the recipe for Minestrone soup, I hope it warms your insides.
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic minced
Pre chopped celery and onion mix in produce department
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
2 small zucchini sliced
2 carrots cubed
