“…I said ‘It sure is windy today!'”
October’s ride is in the books. Actually a beautiful day, despite the wind. Seasonal temps but filtered sunlight made for an enjoyable afternoon. In the spirit of Networking we even skipped Glacier Hill, choosing instead to continue rolling along at a casual pace back to Seester’s (except for Andrew Ohlsson, who can claim that he made it up first and last yesterday). The first half was loud and windy, but the second half was quiet and very easy. With winds gusting to 30 mph, it sure was nice to have that tailwind for the whole second half of the ride.
A few beers later, everyone headed home to dream of next month’s get together.
Regarding next month (through April) – you’ll have 2 options:
- Ride outside. Show up, dress warm, ride your bike!
- Ride inside. Show up, hook up your bike to a computerized trainer, ride a pre-determined “course” shoulder to shoulder with other riders without moving an inch. CLICK HERE for all of the Computrainer details.
Last year we went to exclusively indoor rides all winter. Some people like that, while others (myself included) prefer to always ride outside unless a hurricane hits while a volcano is erupting (highly unlikely in Wisconsin). If you’ve never done a Computrainer ride, give it a shot. Plus, you can ride at your pace without dropping others or falling behind the group.
See you all next month: Wednesday, November 14, 2:00pm
