Saturday Ride

Good connecting with folks along the road on a cloudy cool day. Temperatures ranged between 49-53F. Most riders were dressed for chilly elevations.

Ken and Leo fairly new to the road, decided to see new scenery along "The Loop" to East Fork and Highway 39.

Steve, Chris and Mike were on their way to the Baldy Ski Lifts. Are you warm yet?

Eagle-eyed Matt who spotted coyote ears from a quarter of a mile pointed out a new denizen of the forest, a life-sized orange dressed mannequin. The presumed purpose was to get the wildlife use to the sight of hunter like figure to lure them into a false sense of security.

Early in the ride met Guido on his mountain bike headed up to Colby Trail. Also connected with Rick, a triathlete friend. He really enjoyed the Muddy Buddy event on November 1st at Bonelli Park.

Rode up to the top on Sunday afternoon. Left the house a little after 1:30, cloudy as it was. Never did see any rain. As a matter of fact, saw some sunshine for a little while which suprised me. For the first couple of miles I thought I was going to be the only one on the road because of the weather, but ended up seeing 11 other riders before getting back down to the bottom. Thought I was wearing enough to keep warm on the ride down, but boy was I wrong. Cold, really, really cold is all I can say.
