Wet & Warm Wednesday

by on November 17, 2010

This Ride: 18.4 miles
Kona Distance: 4,836 miles
Month to date: 197 miles
2010 Total: 5,322.5 miles

The rain stopped about an hour before the 5:45 start time for our ride.  It was 56 degrees.  There was no reason not to ride, and so we did.  There were about 6 of us for the ride this morning.  We took it pretty slow.  The trail was covered with wet leaves and tree branch debris.  That makes for a much increased possibility of a fall.  None of us did.  We did not encounter a dry patch of pavement at all along the route.

It was good to get out with the group.  My last ride was solo, and I needed the company this morning.  There was disappointment expressed by several that I didn’t ride the Flatbread 200.  It was the largest group of riders for a DC Randonneuring ride ever, and absolutely beautiful conditions.  Maybe next year.

A disappointment: Clint posted the October SPP mileage results and I missed the high mileage award for October by 61 miles.  Nice job Bryan!  November isn’t looking good for me thus far, especially with so many riders completing the 200k ride, so maybe December is possible.  It is the easiest month to get the award because each rider is limited to one award per year.

But in exciting news: I’m now listed on the DC Randonneur Club website as a member!  I’m now waiting for my RUSA membership to be processed and receive my assigned number.
