The afternoon was breezy and clear. The long sleeves of my blue jersey were a welcome warmth. The clouds were fluffy clusters on the far east horizon. The hope of a Tuesday rain.
Heather and I set a comfortable pace. I chose a bigger gear for strength training with a slower cadence. Tonight's goal was conversation.
I brought the warm Gore jacket, head band and knee covers. All much appreciated on the ride down. The calorie rate did not include the shivering.
