As and (occasionally, somewhat, almost) avid cyclist - I truly enjoyed this. The descriptions, the nonchalant recounts of...sketchy encounters, the light banter - it was great!

Thanks for sharing, and God bless,

Kevin do you think up stuff like this??!?! Very entertaining/unique/humorous/funny stuff! I have to admit my take-away was more about cycling than the topic (river), but still, your creativity is inspiring. :-)

ROFL! A few great lines struck me as too funny! (like the one about not having to send pictures to let him see how much he shaved and the one about the fish between the spokes - HA!) Excellent humor throughout. Definitely kept me entertained and made me laugh out loud! I did think it was stretching the topic just a bit, like the river was just thrown in and not a part of the actual story. But other than that, I loved it!
An "r" is missing in third paragraph (youR); might be considered "petty" in Beginners, but is "major" in Masters; however, your take on the topic of cycling is quite creative. Good job. lol
Very well written.
Hilarious! I can't tell you how tickled I am to see more top-notch humor writers showing up now and again. This is sooooo funny!
Loved the banter between the two of them - and how much you left to our imaginations. I don't think you would WANT to see some of the images I had going through my head! Great approach to this story - I loved the humor - had me rollin in the aisles!
What a HOOT... I am hoping if this were from a real life memory that you were the coach... if not.. i pray the rash wasn't that bad..

Good job keeping me peeled to the story..
This made me laugh and I really enjoyed reading it! Great letter exchange. It seemed very realistic. Thanks for writing this!
This is really funny, I love it!! Thanks for bringing laughter my way!!!
Too funny. Nice work.
This was written before I joined FaithWriters. I love reading the older challenges. This is really funny.
This has to be one of the best humor articles I have ever read on FW. What a gift you have! The "pictures" were priceless.
I enjoyed the creative way this was put together. Your humor is fun, especially the picture descriptions!
Fun reading! Your format is unusual and the two letter writers are funny and charming. I also like the way they nonchalantly mention the mini disasters.
As soon as I read the first paragraph, I remembered how much I loved this one the first time I read it. But it was even MORE fun this time! I know I picked up on humor I'd missed the first time through. You are very talented.
This was truly a delight to read, Although I do not ride bikes, I do ride horses and there are so many similarities here. One of my favorite lines, "I also found out that a patch of fresh asphalt can stop a bike really fast. Luckily it wasn’t a very rough landing"

As it reminded me of what I once head about horseback riding, that it is the art of keeping you and the ground from ever meeting.

Thank-you for bringing a smile into my day today.
