There are conditions which negatively impact our Friendly Friday rides to Annapolis for breakfast. A planned Friday night 200k ride would be one of them.

So far, the Friendly Friday rides have thrown some challenges at us.  Last week, it was snow showers while we were riding.  This morning, it was that most of our regular riders were resting for their epic winter night ride.  They are starting at 7:00 pm and riding 200k, fully expecting to complete the ride in the dark.  Needless to say, they weren’t interested in an early morning ride today.  But there were 4 of us who met up and rode in the very chilly 21° F temps.  Three of us went into Annapolis for breakfast after riding the trail to the end, negotiating several sections that were glacial.  We had a nice breakfast at Chick & Ruth’s with Mike’s friends Dave and Rod.

On the way back, we answered Bill’s questions about Randonneuring and encouraging him to step up into riding 200k.  I think he will make the leap this year, maybe as early as this spring.  Answering his questions was a good review for me as I anticipate Monday’s solo 200k.

Although I’m not riding until Monday, I’m looking forward to the weekend’s cycling activities.  Today will be getting the bike and gear ready for Monday’s ride (the weekend is too busy to accomplish this).  Saturday I’m looking forward to the ride reports from the Friday night ride.  Sunday night we have our SPP “Awards Happy Hour” where we review the year and socialize with spouses.  I’m hoping that I got the high mileage award for December.

Now, on with it.
