|KP and TD checking out bikes in Denver|
At any rate, Matt and I met at Blue Line Coffee on 14th Street just as the sun was coming up and rode our bikes to the airport to pick up the rental car. It was a perfect morning for riding. After an encounter with a traffic jam involving a gaggle of geese along path next to Carter Lake, and then the realization that Google maps had led us astray on the location, we backtracked and finally made it to pick up the car, already 20 minutes behind schedule. Julie sacrificed a stop for coffee in favor of getting out of town asap; thankfully, Matt lived to tell about it. We arrive in Des Moines right on schedule and drove right to the location of the press conference. I love it when a plan comes together!
