Riding from Laurel Park Shopping Center to Ashland Coffee & Tea is also known as the ABC (Ashland Breakfast Club) route.  A ride I've taken more times than I have fingers and toes.  Even with my toes exposed. It is also the best ride around town to introduce beginner rides to the hobby.  Flat, shaded and at 20 miles it is a good ride for a newbie to brag about. It is also a great welcome back to cycling ride.

This past weekend I took Crystal for her third and Gabriel for his second tour of the ABC.  We were two wheels rolling by 8:30am and made it to Ashland Coffee & Tea in just under an hour.  The weather was great, a bit of a cold nip, but nothing a jacket couldn't solve.  At ACT we chowed on bagels with Cran-Apple spread and sipped on tasty coffee. The weather warmed up a bit for the return lap, but not enough to warrant jacket removal. The end result was two riders who want to try and keep cycling for the foreseeable future.  I hope they keep at it. The rest is in the pictures.

This could alternately be titled "Tab Run." Nicely done, Tabs.

Y'ens have an idea where you might be riding this weekend?
