We had riders to show up and 4 riders rode. They met Brian on the road.
From Jerry: It was a beautiful day to ride a bike! Before we got to Bagley Road, Bryan Sharp met up with us. The 4 of us fought the gale force headwinds to Grafton! There, Tim needed to head to Rocky River to meet his wife by 11:45. I couldn’t resist the thought of all that tailwind, so I joined him. John continued west on the route and Brian turned back toward home. I rode the Metroparks home from Rocky River and finished with 53 miles! All the river fords were closed and the river level is very high!
Close calls: Tim New ran into the back of me and almost crashed! He was looking at his Garmin. Those things are really unsafe!!! 😉

On Sunday, March 11th, the roads were a little suspect from the previous day’s snow but Tim New braved the elements and road to the start.
