We were headed to the Buena Vista Bike Fest. My husband likes to do 100 mile (century) bicycle rides-- and i like to get the heck out of town! So while i don't pedal a bicycle one darn mile, i do provide the support-- or in bicycle lingo: SAG.
Sagging consists of driving the route along with the bicyclist bringing along water, food, extra clothing and random bicycle tools ( a wee bit of loving encouragement and yummy homemade muffins). While there is some food and water provided at the rest stops of organized events, my crew prefers their own (as in "my system is used to this food and i don't want to eat anything that is unfamiliar and make my tummy hurt" and their own sports drink powder). I take along my knitting (but appartently i don't photograph it.) : the yarn kate dyed for socks and cast on the Pea-Pod sweater from IK. This is Tom and Darell at the end of the ride at McPhlemy Park, B.V. (New Belgium is a sponsor and apprently a tasty beverage after 100 miles in the heat.)
This is the best and now my favorite road sign i've ever seen. Isn't it absolutely charming? See the little duckie that has it's wings out? He's quacking, "hey wait for me!" You know the little song: five little ducks went out to play, over the hills and far away. Mother duck said, 'quack, quack, quack!!!', but only four little ducks came waddleing back!" (maybe you don't, maybe you aren't a preschool teacher!)
And yes, i accidently found the yarn shop in Buena Vista. Really, it was an accident. i went zipping past it, noticed the shop and made a quick turn-around. The shop is BEAUTIFUL!! (and yes, i forgot to take a picture of the inside-- but trust me the goods are in there-- very good indeed!)I spent some time wandering around the store, touching the yarns, but didn't buy anything.
