What a nice day for a ride although Peggy, turning and catching me with camera up, seems a little surprised. Actually, the battery on my camera has gone bad so I had to use the phone and it is difficult to access it with gloves and all so I have few images to share. Seventeen of us headed toward Granville with a pleasant tail wind. Once there....
...about half of us stopped at the coffee shop to either shake our hair or reveal a new hair style, Lisa on the left, Deniece on the right. She too seemed surprised that I would take a pic so I have to relearn these people. Always be ready when I am in the vicinity.
Through the window, those who paused at CVS, circled and waited but alas, we took too long so Jordan, Philippe, Doug, Todd, Paul, etc... departed. The rest of us took off soon thereafter and battled a strong head wind on the way back. For some of us, the 42 miles frayed our senses and fitness and we began to whine, just a little, when Dirty Dan took a pull to the right of the white line. That Dan, already in mid season irritating mode.
Yes my few friends, a ride has been scheduled from behind the New Albany Starbucks, high noon on Saturday. We will go from there to Granville for a brief stop to take a sip of something hot. A 42 mile route for us to enjoy: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/26742751. So far, the range of fitness is from little ole me up to Gus Cook but many in between. The pace? Moderate as some of us have not been hammering on our trainers but if you want to begin with the group and then go a bunch harder, no one cares! Ride at whatever pace you want. All are welcome.
