The Bone Chilling Ride Report
Interesting scene in the New Albany parking lot this morning. Despite bone chilling cold of 23D at the start, everyone who said they would be there were there except the women (Amanda, Cindy, Ginger, Peggy & Jeff) who predictably bailed. Curiously, also not there was Jamie Roberts who had boasted he would show and pull the entire route. There were multiple vicious shots taken at "no show" Jamie but I defended him as best I could, although it was not an easy assignment.
Ice Road Cyclers
Note to self: Never schedule a winter ride from an unplowed parking lot. Arrived at Wildwood to find 13 cyclists and a glare of ice. Fortunately, no one fell while navigating the mini berg. Rick Holt was the last to arrive but on time. Rick discovered he had forgotten his helmet and the ever helpful Cindy Berard gave him an extra. Noted by all is the fact that never in the history of human endeavor has a helnit so small been placed on a head so large. The only way that helmet would have been useful during a crash is if Rick went in head-first, perpendicular to the ground. One tasteless person did say that Rick looked better under the helmet then the usual wearer.
