And another thing: I wasn’t even a year old when Paul McCartney and John Lennon wrote “With a Little Help from My Friends,” which the Beatles recorded in 1967 on “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”

But I can’t help but think of this song after eating dinner last night at The Elms with a bunch of my friends from the Melon City Bike Club. They are the greatest and they’ve been even better friends this week. And just remember, guys, RAGBRAI is only 141 days away.
