Aaron C seems incredulous that not more cyclists wanted to ride this evening......there, there in the sky, just beyond the crane and above the tree line, in the distance....that's why.
Wow, more arrived. They all seemed surprised that I too had come out. We speculated where some other regulars were and responses ranged from "On a flight to Escondido" to sitting on a trainer.
Paul D made a last minute decision to ride and was the last to arrive. He referred to is as "Going Belgium." I was thinking of far more negative terms to describe the forth coming experience.
Radar check....not good but the red and yellow cells were gone, just a sea of green. A total of 12 of us shoved off.
It was promoted as a recovery paced ride but already, I was unable to hold the wheels and was now dropping off. The group went to Granville and back, finishing with 32 miles and a 22mph average. Now some clarity.....
...I regret that I misled you into thinking I actually rode. I was in my car when I took the image of the cyclists. No one was surprised to see me on the bike cause I was not on one. Everything else above is factual or close enough to be considered so. I got home, noted the inside temperature was high 60's and started a fire.
