On Saturday, we celebrated my husband's 56th birthday by cycling 56 miles. Dave designed the route which began at our house and ended at Chalet Debonne. He estimated that it would take between three to four hours and it wound up being 3 hours and 52 minutes. We pulled into the winery's parking lot at 56.1 miles. Talk about careful planning. It was a great way to commerate his day and burning 1,300 calories was a sweet benefit. He's now thinking about how to acknowledge his next birtday. At least, I have 363 days to prepare.
