Route: Friday Favorite - the Indian Head Rail Trail from the Livingston Rd parking lot to White Plains and return. ~20 miles w/negligible elevation change.
Weather: clear blue skies resulting in copious sunshine with a significantly lower sun angle, temps ranging from the low to mid 50s, air movement out of the southwest quadrant in the upper aughts.
AMS: varied per each individuals preferred riding style
Report: Barbara's presence was a welcome addition to the core Friday IHRT group. She joined us to get some miles in on her "new" fixed gear bicycle - new in that a 90s Hollands frame had been modified to become a fixie. Thus, a bit faster riding for some of us while others enjoyed the trail at their usual rates of speed. Not that many other trail users today; in particular, it seemed like less than normal walkers and joggers. Deer and turtles (! - haven't they heard that the area has had its first frost of the season?) constituted the wildlife sightings.
Item of note: the running water/indoor facilities at White Plains were locked, probably now until Spring. All portolets were still available in their regular locations.
