Woo Hoo, bonus Sunday ride Nov 11 2012

Great weather for November!  Roads were damp, but no rain and it was warm.  Maybe some wobbles for starting at 7:30am after the end o' season party, but, with the weather forecast I couldn't miss the opportunity.  The typical cast of characters, Alex, Ian, Paul, Andrew M, Charles, Jamie, Patrick, Steve J, and me, showed up.  The route was 128km, up Leslie to Vandorf, Vandorf to Warden, Warden N to Herald, Herald E to ninth, Ninth S to Vivian, Vivian E to Ydurham, YD S to 8th, 8th to 3rd concession, 3rd to Goodwood for espresso and butter tart, then the typical way home.

Jamie and Paul short turned, I hope their ride home was fun too!

I haven't been on the hills on Ninth, vivian and 3rd for a few years, these are good ones and sure keep you honest!  I have to say that my fitness has improved over the past few years and I did a way better job this time.

Great fun to ride with this bunch, glad we got up and went for a ride.

Hmm, I guess since we had the end of season ride last week and the end of season party last night that this must be the first ride of the new season! 

Stay tuned to the informal rides, with weather like this there will be more!

Great day for a ride and considering the large number of cyclists on the road this Sunday (Goodwood bakery was packed) there are still lots of riding to do before winter. It’s not time to put the bike away yet BCC members!

With a day nearly appropriate for summer gear in mid Novewmber, this is truly the season that keeps on giving! It was a shame we had to turn early, but Jamie and I had a great ride along 19th and down Reesor. I'm looking forward to more trainer-avoiding rides in the weeks to come!
