I already hit my coffeeneuring limit for the week, so no coffee today, just riding! Alice and I hatched a plan to get up early and ride to our favorite group ride, then ride back. Nothing goes better with riding than more riding!
We left at 7 and planned to complete the 22 mile trek by 8:30, which is when the group ride would depart. It was an excellent plan, but just a touch too ambitious for us – we didn’t account for the elevation between us and our destination. Unfortunately also, the group was headed away from us rather than towards us, so we didn’t have an opportunity to catch them after they left. We texted a bike selfie with our regrets.
We weren’t too sad though. No day on a bike is a loss! The weather was great and the ride was entertainingly challenging.
