Tossing and Tortured 'Till Dawn

I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide.

Saturday, February 17, 2007

I have a backlog of far more interesting posts, but no energy to really deal with them right now. This isn't supposed to be just a random collection of ride reports. But still -- it was 62 degrees today. That's wow nice.

Tomorrow I don't get to ride, and it's scheduled to rain.

There were more than 20 of us, I think, a pretty serious blue and white armada. We did 80-something-miles. With the exception of a very nice Cat 7 move by one guy that caused a (thankfully harmless) crash, everyone was going pretty good, just a nice, mellow, all-day pace. Perfect base miles, in places I've never been, with snowy mountains in the distance, farmlands and open roads, and a pair of bald eagles low overhead at one point.

What more can you ask for, really? I wasn't even cold on the descents.

    i hate you right now. It was 29 here and I took off a layer since it was so warm (down to 3 top, 2 bottom, double hands and feet and head). Tmrw is supposed to be 28, no wind, and maybe flurries towards the end. I'm gonna do a nice slow 4 hour, 50-60 miler I think. I would kill for 62, id prbly ride naked.

    keep the ride reports coming, i find them at least semi-interesting, esp for febtober
