After coming back from up north my father and I got to spend a couple of days with Will, who is recently retired. Will hasn't changed much from before retirement, but now instead of having no time to do anything, he has all the time to do anything, but less money. I'm starting to think being a pro cyclist is a lot like being retired. You get to travel, ride your bike, go places that aren't busy because everyone else is at work, but of course you don't have much money to do it.
But of course you can still have fun. We went for a little cruise on the bikes on Monday morning.
(Note: Not the first attempt at getting this priceless image. It only took us three tries)
After that we went out for Margaritas. I held off till later that night when I realized I wouldn't be making the drive home that night.
(Note: Will is NOT enlarged to show texture)
Later that night the bonding continued in the bike shop in the basement as Will worked on a couple of bikes.
(Note: Photos are not from this week. However things haven't changed much and this is a well representation of the night.)
Happy Retirement Will!
