We had a wet, chilly May, so we just hat to get our training miles in whenever we could as we prep for the big June rides like Little Red, Huntsman 140, and Bike MS.
Here are some Team C4C friends at the Front Runner Century. The forecast called for nasty rain, so I rode my commuter and bundled up (two years ago I did this ride and froze!) but the weather stayed mercifully clear and we enjoyed a beautiful 100k.
Also, in the shot before this one I staggered under the bike's weight and knocked down the flag. It was awesome.
I particularly like the look on Chorney's face in this shot: "Why me?"

it's one of my all-time favorite events.
Our goal is to complete the 70 mile course on the tandem, so we've been training hard! And, of course, choosing matching outfits for every ride because you can't be uncoordinated on a tandem.

|ChenXing wouldn't sit for a portrait, so I had to snap one of Chorney looking so pretty in the peonies|
|And, of course, the gardens were planted in the middle of all of our puppy and cycle training|
Team C4C friends. It was a tough, windy ride and I'm grateful we dropped down to the 60 from our planned 100 mile ride.

She'll get too big for this crate, let alone to lift into this crate, soon, but for now we are a happy commuting trio.

And she's growing like a weed - holy cow! We already had to get her a new collar and crate.
I'm glad Chorney can still keep her in line, even when she pulls stunts like this pic.
