I think dr nate was getting some sort of sick pleasure from leading the paceline over every manhole on labranch. Then I lost him at a stoplight and truthfully was glad to be out of his draft.

Nate kept swerving out of the way just in time for us to hit each manhole cover.

My girlfriend, afriend of mine, and I had a ton of fun... we were in one of the later groups to leave... I dont think we left until 2:20 or so.

I was on my old blue schwin with primer spots. I had green glowsticks in the front wheel and blue in the back.

I was wearing just light pants and a Tshirt... was pretty comfy the whole way, except just after the middle break... took me a while to get warmed back up after sitting around for a few minutes.

Yeah, there's the break... then the coldest part of the ride. That stretch along 610 and into the park has no concrete to keep the air warm... it's always colder there.

I figured it was mostly just stopping and having my body cool down...

either way the first bit after the half way break was soooooo cold!

It also doesn't help that you cross a bayou right there. Some years the wind will whip down the bayou and really freeze you out.
