Saturday

We had 3 riders at the start and ran into Brian on the road. I was all ready to start taking off my cycling shoes and was planning a day or relaxation when the riders started to show up. L It was pretty cold in the morning and it looked like one of those days where it was going to be cold all day… and it just went right though you.   We ended up hanging out at the first rest stop for what seemed like an hour. We hung around because we knew it was going to be a short day. Even though I was a little reluctant to roll out, I was very happy that I did.

Sunday

The sun was out and so were the winds.  We felt its presence once we got out in the open terrain.  It was a tough 45 miles of wind.  Once we turned around and winds were at our backs, we sat up to relax a for a bit.   The lunch break at mile 56 couldn’t come quick enough.  I think we all miscalculated our fuel intake.  We were all happy about the thought that that route made for good training for Calvin’s Challenge, that’s coming  up soon.   We were also caught off guard by hills that came from nowhere.  It WAS fun, however, to cover about 30 miles of roads that we haven’t travelled much.  We’ll have to do  that route again!

Weather Conditions

The start was cold and the winds were very present for the first 45 miles.  After lunch, the temperature made it feel like a totally different day!
