Ugly Sweaters is a theme that I
didn't get. I found an "ugly sweater", meaning the art was awful
and it has strings hanging down and so forth, and wore that.
On my way to the start I noticed
that the convention center now has another wing where the library
used to be.
Then when I got to the Discovery
Museum parking lot I discovered a lot of people with really tacky
By this time we had finished
waiting for whatever it was that we had to wait for. The riding
started. Everybody was in a good mood.
I read later that Andrew Boone
counted 675 of us coming out of the parking lot at the beginning
of the ride.
Ed's sweater wasn't ugly, but he
was riding his 51st consecutive bike party! Gotta document that
kind of streak.
By now we were into the second
regroup's time frame.
After we started rolling again we
went a long ways up Winchester. Many went right on San Carlos,
but I figured it was time for me to head for Mountain View.
Along the way I passed this one house that was very decorated
for the season. Last picture of the trip!
