In a blissful state, in a bed at the Arroyo Grande Best Western, dreaming no doubt of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies and other delectable goodies of the male persuasion, I was rudely awakened at 5:30am with:
The Boyfriend: Time to wake up!
Me: Why. Why must you torture me I said in my best Greta Garbo voice.
The BF: Don't even think of trying to seduce me to remain in bed.
Me: Don't worry about that happening Mister. You're on my shit list.
The BF: You're such a lovely morning person, a delight to be with.
Me: Don't think I don't hear your sarcasm, Mister.
Alas, I rolled out of bed remembering that this Best Western had good coffee in its lobby. In the wee early hours of the morn, still dark, we noticed other cars in the parking lot with bike racks and said hello to cyclists who were here to do the Central Coast Classique, a bike ride, new for us, that tours through San Luis Obispo County along the coast, through vineyards, horse farms, and Lopez Lake.
video of the start. I'm in a green jacket. And we're off.
The BF and I stayed together for the ride, enjoying the scenery and taking in a new ride.
Varian Arabians on Corbett Canyon Road, a series of gentle rolling hills. Omg, those horses were hung and that's all I'm going to say....
The BF. By this time, I had forgiven him for waking me at 5:30am in the morning ...
