Easter Sunday, a cool start to the day although sunny. Ride leader Diane Harris was joined by Nancy Avitabile, Richard Edelman, John Clark, Liam Healy, Ted Peters, Blake Altman, Bob Bernstein, Chantal Briere, Bob Thompson, Jack Gardner (who rode his bike to the start), Drayton Reese (on his newest acquisition...a Seven with all the bells and whistles!), and Gary Johnson (fresh from having worked all night). The faster group took off not to be seen again until the rest stop, while Liam and I took the more leisurely A pace. Jack, John, Gary, Reese, and Ted waited for us at the rest stop where we regrouped, then continued the ride at the more leisurely pace, easing up at the top of hills to let those behind catch up. We exchanged tips on climbing, discussed the newest bike technology and whether we really needed it or just wanted it (both!!). It stayed on the cool side with some wind but still a beautiful day for a ride. Leader's ams 15.3.
