The official Family Bike Shop blog that I try to keep up to date with current events, bike shop ride info, and Team Family Bike Shop/DCMTB race results.

Cancelled races and power outages.

Yesterday was Wednesdays at Wakefield. Trevor, John and I decided to take a chance on the weather and we drove down to race. About halfway there, it started to rain and it didn't look good. We pulled into a rainy Wakefield at 5 and the race had just been called. Bummer.

The traffic getting back from Northern VA is terrible at this time so we decided to go to Kilroy's, a local bar. After a few beers and some wings I had the great idea of hitting up Rosaryville for a ride. John and Trevor agreed, so we headed out. For as much rain as was present in VA, it was dry in MD. We had a great lap and the night was salvaged.

Thursday morning, I got a call from Craig at the shop and he said the power was out. Great! A beautiful day and no lights. At this day and age with everything computerized, I can't even run the shop. Apparently, a transformer had blown early in the morning and by 1:30, with still no power, we decided to close the shop. But all was not lost! I got in touch with my friend, Brendon, and we went out in my boat wakeboarding. It was a great day on the water and a nice treat to be able to get out during the week.

To top off my day, Sarah, Dexter, Willow and I had a wonderful evening in Annapolis. We started it off at Pusser's for dinner and Painkillers. Then we headed over to Storm Bros. Ice Cream for dessert. A great way to cap the day.

All in all, a great couple of days. Hopefully the weekend continues with the nice weather and we are busy at the shop!
