May/June 2023, More catch up rides!

 Had a bit of a mix of weather as May continued. We had rides May 28 and 29.

May 28 ride, was a more in-depth test off the "new to me" GoPro 3 White video camera and some sunny early but late sprinkles in the afternoon! Here's a video of the ride! We rode 27 miles to Security, CO. to see my Mom, rode the Pikes Peak Greenway south, Las Vegas St. and Hwy. 85/87. 

May 29 ride, It's Memorial Day so we did our Honor Ride! We rode to a Memorial Service at the Veteran's Pavillon at Memorial Park here in Co. Springs (11 am), then to Evergreen Cemetary to visit my Grandpa Plumlee, who's site is in the American Legon area, then to the El Paso County Veteran's Memorial in Bear Creek Park, to visit Jo's Dad's plaque stone. "All gave Some, Some gave ALL! Remember the fallen, that gave us our Freedom's! Then enjoy your BBQ, outing etc. 

June 1 ride, We were invited to join a ride with Dan and his "Spokes Fighting Strokes" group on a ride out of Angletech at 10 AM. Dan, is a stroke survivor he started a service to help other stroke survivors get more out of life. He tours the USA in a RV with a large trailer full of recumbent trikes and gives out rides and advise to hospitals, rehabilitation centers, etc. When he's in Co. Springs, he set's up a base camp at a space provided by Kelvin and the crew at Angletech ( Sadly it rain on us the whole ride so we left before the lunch stop as Jo got COLD, (we have cold rains even in the summer months in Colorado!!). Still we enjoyed the ride with about 10 machines and riders! Will add video later. 

 June 2 ride, A much less WET ride lot's of sun with clouds here and there so we did a loop ride of a couple of trails and bike lanes in the area, stopped at America the Beautiful Park in downtown Co. Springs and took some photos. Nice to end the ride NOT wet and dirty as I can't afford fenders for the trike yet, rats!
