A very foggy start to our ride, Saturday morning, headed to Hargus Lake. Meantime, well north of us, many of the elite climbers were shoving off on "The Frank". From what I am able to gather, Marty finished first with a time of 6:18, followed by Luke Russell at 6:24. John Day came in at 7:19. Ours was a somewhat flatter route for the 11 of us who headed out in to the gathering gloom. So humid and thick was the fog, it was like riding in the rain.
Eventually though, the fog lifted, the hungry became hungrier and so upon reaching the market, we had to assist Mark C with managing his snacks out the door. Not shown but it was definitely there hidden from view was a large Hershey bar to go with the Mountain Dew, chips and Gatorade. As others walked to the lake for a look, Mark chomped and eventually, we were able to leave, along with Mark, slightly heavier than when he arrived.
It was curious that Dustin and Steve O were not at the Frank but we were glad they came with us. Dustin, shows off his bad haircut that had a severe slope from one side to the other, due no doubt to his habit of poor tipping and use of the $1.95 coupons at Great Clips. Below we take a last look at the lake before heading back. I bugged out to add a few miles and finished with 80 while the others finished with around 65. Got out Sunday for a ride with a couple of guys to add 35 to the weekend tally.
