4/6 - Northern Senior Center to Avenue - AA - 52

Sat, April 06, 2019 10:00 AM | Brad Francisco

Leader:  Brad Francisco

Members:  Blake Altman, Matthew Lewandowski

Guests:  None

Route:  Northern Senior Center to Avenue via 470 and back thru Chaptico

Weather:  High 40's at the start and lower 60's at the end.  Light winds.  Made clothing selection a compromise.

AMS:  18.55 mph according to a backup computer.

Mechanicals/Mishaps:  One dropped chain.  One GPS unit deciding to take a rest break.

Report:  Started a bit late.  Not  big deal.  It allowed the temperature to rise a bit.  Roads need some pothole repairs.  We missed most of the rough stuff.  Kind of cold and gloomy at the start, but was quite nice by the end.  Enjoyable ride.  They tried to get me to order an ice cream at the Chaptico market.  But, it wasn't happening.  Now if they did - I would have.  We stayed together for the most part.  Not always, but no one was left too far behind and we always regrouped.  Interactions with vehicles and others were quite pleasant.  What more could you ask for?  Thanks for joining me.
