Following the Trail

Yesterday the Sunday Group was split into two as a few of the regular riders rode a fundraising route.

The rest of us decided to ride the same route the 50k fundraisers were riding (but without the cue sheet) and departed about 30 minutes early.

Without really good turn markings on the pavement we overshot a few of the turns. The route was a poor choice for beginners taking in quite a few of the harder climbs in the area.

The weather was very cold. Without full fingered gloves it was an exercise to try to keep the fingers thawed.

About half-way through the ride the first and only Fundrider we would see, caught up and rode with us the rest of the way home.

Next time I take better precautions for the fingers and toes.

Welcome to winter.
