What a pretty morning!  This was the Friendly Friday Ride into Annapolis for breakfast.

When Clint arrived at the Rusty Bridge, his bike was decked out in LED Christmas lights, causing quite a sensation.   (The photo needed image stabilization.  As you can see, it was dark at 5:45.  Clint got some better photos.)

Seven us started out with temps at about 24 degrees F and had a great ride with a lot of conversation.  We avoided a stretch of Old County Road which Dan said has a sheet of ice across it, and instead tackled the hill in Round Bay again.  Only Dave did not continue on to Annapolis for Breakfast.  There was a lot of traffic in Annapolis, so we found some side streets and wound our way to the Hard Bean (Mike to Chick & Ruth’s) where Myna took care of our breakfast sandwiches and coffee.  While we were eating, we made the phone calls to MIA Chip and Jeff, leaving semi abusive voice mail messages  about their absences.

During the return trip, we discussed license plate holder “awards” we might make available to those who have ridden at least 10,000 miles and possible costuming for our upcoming Christmas Display Ride on the 18th.

I didn’t extend my ride this morning.  There is simply too much to do.  Wishing the DC Rand riders good weather for the Brevet tomorrow.  Looks like it will be a nice day.
