It's Opening Day!

Today is Opening Day!

No, not for the St. Louis Cardinals. That already took place.

I'm talking about the Belleville Area Bicycling and Eating Society. Our 2008 season of Wednesday Evening Rides opens at 6 p.m. today at the Metro-East Park and Recreation District offices, 100 United Drive, in Collinsville, Ill. Ride leader Jerry Whittle will be leading us on your choice of routes on the Madison County Transit trail system. All of our Wednesday Evening Rides will be on the MCT trails during the month of April.

Even though it's going to be a touch chilly tonight -- it should be about 50 degrees at 6 p.m., so dress warm -- it will be great to get out with my cycling friends. After the ride, we'll most likely eat at the nearby Culver's Restaurant.

A friend of mine suggested that Jerry throw out the first tube to mark Opening Day. That's not a bad idea!

As for the Cardinals' Opening Day(s), that didn't go so well. All the Opening Day hoopla took place Monday afternoon, the game was called because of rain. The Cardinals and Colorado Rockies reopened the season Tuesday night with the Cardinals going down to defeat 2-1.
