Thank you Linda for entertaining Nimue!

The pros may ride twice as fast, but we got to stop at a nice cafe for lunch and cappuccino, and spent the day looking at the CA countryside rather than other cyclists' backsides in the peloton.

They also probably didn't have to cook their own dinner and put the crazo kid to bed after their rides, but then again, we didn't have to get up and do it again in the rain the next day!
