That meant I'd return by myself. I shrugged and pedaled easily with the wind pushing me along, waiting patiently for the reckoning. We went by upwards of a dozen golf courses, pumped up and over inlet bridges, saw flashes of ocean and waterway, all with little threat from auto traffic. Rick wore a dentist's mirror-type rearview mirror on a headband and called out traffic advisories. The group collected once again for a break at a Ranch House Restaurant at about 10:30 a.m. This was a brunch stop and I pulled over with the rest. "When do we get to Boca?" I asked. "We passed Boca 5 miles back," Rick said. "Aren't you coming to Fort Lauderdale? It's only another 19 miles." "Past Boca?" I asked, bewildered. "I missed the signs. Where are we?" "Deerfield Beach," he said. It was 30 miles back to West Palm Beach. I accepted another handful of Rick Mathes' bridge-mix restorative and headed north. You might notice this account ending abruptly right here. My reasons have to do with my pedaling 30 miles into the teeth of a gale and not wishing to share my feelings on that experience. Suffice to say, I limped into Currie Park at 1:50 p.m. and made some resolutions that will see me through the next decade.

"How far (pant) are they (pant)?" asked a female voice behind me. Passing me on her 10-speed was Tracey Levin, 15. "Pretty far," I said. "A mile or so." "I'm late," she said, passing me. "I'll never catch them." I sensed her disappointment, having observed already that cyclists are much happier ignoring the scenery in a rolling pack of crazed hunchbacks than ignoring it in solitude. We caught the pack or part of the pack, at least resting at an outdoor restaurant near Delray Beach. I pulled up, dismounted and shook out the kinks. About 15 cyclists milled about, drinking from their water bottles and chatting. A few stragglers who had left at 8:30 or so came up, including a couple on a tandem 10-speed. "Some water?" One of the men who had passed me offered a drink and I accepted gratefully. The temperature was a comfortable 75 but I had sweated a lot. My benefactor introduced himself as Hick Mathes. Earlier 1 had admired the luxuriant sheepskin sad-dlecover on his bike and told him so. "It's the most comfortable thing I've ever ridden on," Mathes said. He pulled a plastic bag of peanuts, yellow raisins and M&Ms out of his kit and offered me a handful. "When I ride, I have to eat every hour or so," he said. The combination of fruit, nuts and chocolate was so good that it was only with restraint that I did not pack my cheek pouches like a hamster. We hit the road. This time I was not alone. Tracey and Rick hung back with me, while the bulk of the riders raced south. Now it was nice because Rick and I could talk quite easily, he turning his head slightly to be heard. "Where do I turn back for the 25-mile loop?" I asked. "Boca?" r FOR CIRCULATION SERVICE PHONE 639-1450 Circulation Service Department Hours: SALE!
