An Easy Friday

by on April 6, 2012

Because today is Good Friday and I have family coming in also for the three days, I planned a shorter ride this morning.  That made it an easy Friday ride.

The full moon was low in the sky, and turning from white to yellow as we met on the Rusty Bridge.  A dozen riders were out, and it was a pleasant trip into Annapolis without incident.  I rode the Kona this morning.  I had the front wheel checked out yesterday, and after some minor adjustments wanted to ride it as a test ride before the Flèche.  Everything was working properly on the bike except I need to tweek the front ring shifting a bit.  Coming out of the small ring to the big ring isn’t as smooth as I would like it to be.

Of the 10 of us at breakfast, 8 of us were Flèche team members, so most of the discussion was about the upcoming ride.  The weather forecast this far out couldn’t be better.  I hope it holds.

The return trip was uneventful, and finally dwindled down to me riding solo as people separated from the group to head home and off to work.

It was a gentle day.

It was a good day to ride a bike.

Month: 112.1 miles
