On a sunny thursday morning I awoke before the alarm just minutes before that suck was going to go off, it was 6:40....... I had gotten about 6 hours of sleep and by my sleep time that was all I needed, especially when I was going to sneak in a ride on my bike. I have family staying at the house and was free until 10:00 so you know what this bike whore did.... I packed up the car and let it run to clear the windshield of the ice. It was downright chilly, when I hit the trail it was 33 degrees at the case pond lot. But I was on a mission and got right to pedaling, luckily I had my favorite riding companion at my side more than happy to be out there with me. I was expecting it to be much more wet but to my surprise it wasn't as bad as I thought. The leaves and ground were frozen and were damp which made for some tricky uphills but for the most part it was not a big deal at all. I set out on blue since it's always a safe bet and sure enough I ran into Pat. This worked out great so I followed him around for an hour, and then he had to split to meet with a group he was meeting with at 9:00. I continued on down the tinti and had a might fine time. I caught myself smiling again as I was over joyed to be out and riding and watching my pooch trotting at my side. I was having a great day and not wanting it to end but as the frozen leaves gave way to just being wet I was heading off the hill and to the car. I had such a great day riding and went down as one of the best days of the season. The rides are becoming short numbered as the weather is getting cooler and cooler. Get out there and ride and enjoy!
