The Perfect Saturday

It would be hard to beat the Saturday I enjoyed yesterday. I met up with Johnny5, the new 9-5er, and Scott "Monster" McConnell out at Lock4 for a few laps around the park. For once I showed up on time, which was a half hour before Thad so I rode a bit before he arrived. Then Scott said he and his buddy were running late too so Thad and I went out and rode a quick 1/2 lap. Then we met up with Scott and his friend John whom he was showing the ropes of off-road riding to. Another Wood N Wave rider was in attendance having seen Scott's invite over at the Nashville Mtn Bike forums.

We had a good size group and filled the spectrum of skill and fitness level. The trail could not of been in any better shape. It was tacky and fast and really let you rail into the much fun! It was another cool morning with a ton of humidity but made for great riding weather without the fear of getting overheated.

On to the more exciting photos of the day:

I think I spot a Catahoula

Puppies aren't shy are they?

Hey there JD!

The crew with our fearless isn't he tall?

I met another new friend on the trail

How do you top a great morning on the trail? A great lunch with my in-laws at a fun new Mexican restaurant in the every changing Gulch area of Nashville, Cantina Laredo. Then after lunch coffee at Crema, Nashville's best coffee shop (according to me) Yum!

Our Saturday had another big event planned, a wedding with reception at the Copper Kettle downtown. Two friends we've met through our Young Couples group tied the knot at a lovely little church off 12 South. Beth and I really enjoyed the ceremony and the food of course was amazing from the Copper Kettle. Best bonus: Yazoo Pale and Dos Perros on tap. (and ironically served in High Life glasses) I'd say this could be considered the High Life!

Bikes, food, coffee, friends and Yazoo beer... The Perfect Saturday.
