Tour de Foothills 2012

The Tour de Foothills had sunny day for their event. The air was crisp and cool with the wind blowing cold. Plenty of folks doing the full 100 mile ride that swung up Glendora Mountain Road. Riders were happy that they were dry. Ken quickly said hello on the way up. Chatted with Eric and friends at the top of Monroe at the King of Mountain Finish.  Photo: Friends and Eric on the right.

Bill and Matt arrived together. On the way down, I gave my Gore Wind Stopper gloves a debut. They fit well so I could still grip the brakes and helped the fingers tremendously. The double leggings were toasty and tube shell kept my neck and head warm. I missed my Gore jacket and toe cozies, but I thought the sun would have heated the air more. Boy was I wrong.

Good to ride. Sunny day. Burned lots of calories on the descent and was nicely tuckered out the rest of the day to enjoy being a couch potato with my daughter.
