2/14 Friday IHRT ride - ALL class

Fri, February 14, 2020 10:30 AM | Ron Altemus (Administrator)

Leader:  Ron Altemus

Members:  Kirk Fedder, Esther Steward, Donaro Gardner

Route:   the Friday winter standard - Indian Head Rail Trail from Livingston Rd parking lot to White Plains and return

Weather:   temps in the upper 30s (maybe hitting 40!), intermittent gusty winds from the NW, lots of sunshine

AMS:  a tad over 12

Mechanicals/Mishaps:  none though Donaro was concerned that his rear tire had a slow leak but he added air at White Plains and had no problems on our return.

Report:  the temps actually ended up several degrees warmer than expected so it really didn't qualify as polar bear cycling.  We didn't see any other cyclists riding, though.  There were a number of walkers, the majority ot the White Plains end.  And no wildlife sightings, either.  Outbound, Esther took off, though always in sight ahead, and the remaining three of us traveled together with lots of conversation.  We returned as a group, shifting pairs again with plenty of discourse.
