Countdown to OC11 – 1 Day

by on October 29, 2010

This Ride: 25.3 miles
Kona Distance: 4,407.8 miles
Month to date: 597.8 miles
2010 Total: 4,894.2 miles
5,254.8 mile goal in 2010: (360.1 miles to go)

What a difference a day makes. 50 degrees at the start with a brisk breeze.  Six met at the Rusty Bridge and a leisurely ride to Annapolis for breakfast.  We discussed tomorrow’s OC11 ride nearly nonstop, from the predicted weather to the route to the planned stops (including Dogfish Head Brewing Company) to previous OC rides.  This is one of the highlights of the SPP rides, and although the numbers keep changing, we think we have about a dozen or so riders.

Dan met us at the Hard Bean.  We ate, told stories, and otherwise had a great start to the day.  On the way back, we rode the length of Ritchie Highway (at least to my house), deciding not to cross traffic and regain the trail.

I’m battling a head cold, but it has not moved to my lungs so a little decongestant and I’m fine.  I really don’t think it will impact the ride significantly.  In fact, I feel better after this morning’s ride than I did before I climbed on the bike.  I’m off later this morning to get just a little more cool weather gear.  The highs this weekend don’t look to move above 60, and after this morning’s ride, I know I could use ear warmers & maybe a cap.  Forecast temps at start time is anywhere between 37 and 45.
