Back to the ride, Steve and Dennis were joined by a late arriving Rick H and also Bob A. It was noted as the group passed the car wash thermometer that the temperature flashed 23 and then 24 so there was a warming trend. For some reason, The Rushville Coffee House ride morphed into the Stoutesville Market ride again. The foursome stayed together for the most part and elected to stick with a 45 mile route.
On Sunday, with morning temps around 18, I opted to try the Gahanna Heat of the Day Ride. I thought perhaps since the morning had been so cold several would show for this ride but there were only 5 of us and the pace was true to the description of a C/D ride. The group even stopped at UDF at mile 20 and it took all my willpower not to order ice cream. We cut the route a little short since one member of the group had become cold. Finished with 29 miles.
