Living up to its name the the first group ride of the season offered a little bit of everything. Overall about 15 riders showed up for the inaugural edition. We started in snow, then it was dry, and then is rained. Temperatures hovered in the high 30’s but it felt colder. Save a minor mis-route the "route" was followed to a T and I think we even got away with only one horn honk! Quite a few town sprints were contested…...at least by a portion of the group, and I think we even resealed a tubless tire without issue. As usual, I overdressed and was sweating like an MMA fighter trying to make weight. Check out Instagram for the single picture I managed to snap.....I'll do better next time. Sadly beer was not involved, at least not as a group, but there are more rides to come. I made sure to have a few (+/- 1/2 x # of riders?).
Thanks again to everyone who came out to suffer together. It certainly was better than the rollers/trainer/smart-trainer/egoski. Hopefully we will have a little bit better weather for the ride on the 17th. Till then, stay warm and keep rolling those winter miles.
