Usually this late in the season our number of riders drop off, but that wasn’t the case tonight. Even with a shift to Central Trail, 23 riders turned out for a cool evening ride. A stiff east wind at 10 challenged us on our return trip tonight, but didn’t slow us down. Edgar had a large crowd for his Fast & Furious group that returned a 23.3 mph for the night. Jen’s Reasonably Fast Group was a little light tonight at 5 riders, but they were still able to come in at a nice 20.3 mph. And my group of 8 Reasonable & Reliable riders? They must have eaten their Wheaties today, because we came back with a quick 19.4, a season high and no complaints about the winds! Great teamwork tonight to beat those winds. And we had a visit from the Tristan Hill back at Central Trail. His recovery from his shoulder injury has been slow, but he hopes to be back for next season.
Be sure to join us next week at Central Trail to close out our season of regular rides. We hope to see you all there.
