Report: Brisk today with temps in the 30’s and strong winds at times.  But everyone enjoyed the sunny outing, despite the cool temps and wind, and especially with Stella’s arrival looming.  The riders split into two groups over the first half of the course and then joined back up at Ollie’s for a quick snack and a few laughs.  For the return, three groups saw everyone back smiling –with a sweep from Blake, Matthew, and me over the remainder of the course resulting in a very pleasant 18.4 average.  Thanks to all for coming out and making this a fantastic ride!
