A Good Start to March

by on March 1, 2011

This Ride: 23.9 miles
Month: 23.9 miles
2011: 955.1 miles
Total since 1/1/10: 7,074.8 miles

At 5:45 this morning, there was a glow in the sky. The crescent moon and Venus hung together low in the sky. It was simply gorgeous. Bryan, Chris L, and I started out from the Rusty Bridge, soon picking up Chip & Clif. The five of us had an easy pace going and soon Jeff Sch joined us. The ride through Round Bay was quieter than yesterday morning. Everything was back to normal … except for the family whose house was gutted in yesterday morning’s fire. I’m fully expecting some increase in the number of 5:45 riders this month. It will be fun to see who joins us.

We talked about upcoming rides. Chip and Clif are headed to France for the PBP ride (1200 k) this summer, and there are plenty of qualifying rides to ride before then. Bryan is shooting for the Super Randonneur Award this year, that is a 200, 300, 400, & 600 k ride in one calendar year. Lining these rides up and planning for them takes some effort.

We missed three very regular riders this morning. Here’s hoping that all are well.

Now, time to get ready for work.
