Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Epic Weekend ride

OK, maybe not Epic but it sure was a nice day. I tell you, we were blessed yesterday with some fantastic weather. It's been in the 90's/100's the last 60 days. Yesterday we did our normal weekly club ride and you could not have asked for better temperatures. Overcast most of the morning and in the mid 80's.
Ride along.

There were only 4 of us and all different speed riders.
A lot of impromptu racing going on.
