There were 4 riders at the start.  A couple of riders really wanted to complete a century but because of the weather they decided to cut the ride short.  It started to get colder during the ride and they started to get wet because of the snow.   Other than that, it was a fun day on the road.

 Weather Conditions

At the start it looked like there was going to be some type of precipitation but we weren’t sure of which type because the temperature was 35 degrees at the start.  I don’t think anyone would have guessed that 35 degrees would be the high for the day.  As it turns out, the temperature would start to drop and shortly after the riders left it started to snow (at the start location) and continued to snow lightly throughout the day.  The riders got wet on the return as a result.
