Dave Gray wows us all at the start. A couple of weeks ago he broke his femur. (Check out the juicy details on the Surly blog at http://www.surlybikes.com/) He rode up that morning on a specially modified Big Dummy. He's nothing short of an inspiration. Bill acting like he's had a 4-pack o' Surly already. The first stop was a beer stash at Hidden Falls. Julia is enjoying the shade. Shade was a good thing. Shade was my friend.
Brauer Power gleans the nectar from a punctured vial of Furious. Ever resourceful and thrifty is that Brauer.An animated Dave Lee and his beautiful fiance, Dawn. Our group pretty much took over the plaza across from Great Waters in downtown St Paul. We stormed the holy city, upsetting three weddings in the process.
There's more. Look for a link to my Flickr page to be posted soon with all the juicy details chronicled digitally from start to finish. Okay ... this way to the Thirsty 7's photo page!
