Make a Fixed Time for Study

עשה תורתך קבע – אמור מעט ועשה הרבה

Shavei Tzion – we arrive, just barely in time

Posted by rabbiart on October 30, 2012

After a long night’s journey into night, we finally made it to the ride.  We flew from SFO to Munich, where the temperature was a cook no make that cold, 0 degrees Celsius.  Shuttle to the Novotel to sleep and back in the morning.  We had to wait outside for the shuttle bus, so we bundled up everything we could wear, because we weren’t planning to go somewhere where the cars were frosted with snow.  Uh… we were thinking  Negev desert, 85+ degrees, and well, you get the picture.  Or you will after it’s uploaded.  I had to miss a few minutes of the briefing, because it had already started before we arrived. Plus I had to step out to get a bike assembled with pedals and seat and odometer, because you really can’t ride without at least 2 out of the 3.  So  maybe they were trying to make me feel better, because the “last 15 minutes” stretched to 40 minutes long.

But we’re here, we’re excited and tomorrow we ride about 52 miles, with only about 2500 feet of climbing.  

60 riders in total, with two arriving in the middle of the night tonight, renting a car, and catching the ride just as well pull out, or maybe at the first rest stop. So even though we had to rebook, stay overnight in an airport, I didn’t even win the prize (ha! booby prize that is) for being the last to arrive.

Tomorrow promises to be a great day, with a stop at the biblical city of Dan, or what’s left of it today, a bird sanctuary tour, and I forget what else.
