Boomers Restaurant
Cedar Bike Shop Owner Brian
Oscar and Ryan

Today was another rest day...highlighted by a visit from my old friends, Jim and Darlene, who drove up from Las Vegas. We enjoyed seeing them and appreciate their offer to take us to the Super Wal-Mart for one-stop shopping.

It was great to spend time with them and catch up on what's going on in our lives.

Once again our bikes were in need of attention and fortunately we found the Cedar Bike Shop owned and operated by Brian, an avid biker and excellent mechanic. He replaced both chains, added a handlebar extender to my bike, and repacked the bearings in David's rear hub. For cyclists passing through Cedar City we can highly recommend this shop. Also at the bike shop we met Oscar and Ryan, two cross-country cyclists traveling the same route as us, who left San Francisco one day after our departure and arrived in Cedar City a day after us. We anticipate meeting up with them again somewhere along the road.

We were fortunate on one hand to get a motel in Cedar City just prior to one of the most significant Shakespeare festivals in the country. On the other hand, we had to leave without having an opportunity to see a play on our day off.

One additional tip for cyclists passing through: we both enjoyed much-needed and very reasonably priced massages at the Swaha School of Massage on south Main Street.

We close this journal entry by pointing out that Cedar City loved us! In our honor the city changed the name of a prominent restaurant to BOOMERS Restaurant (see photo). In all modesty we simply could not accept changing the name of the city to Boomersville.
