better Craic

Bob worked up a really great new route with the B&A. I was getting in from that day almost exactly 1 week ago now. Not much time to write about it, but this route is a winner. Sunday was a great day to ride as well. Ken & I carpooled to the start and met up at 7 for coffee with some of the other guys before a quick bolt to the official start. From the chatter on the forum beforehand it sounded like a few were scared off by the wind. We had tailwinds or crosswinds at worst for the entire trip south. By the time we turned around the front slowed and the headwinds weren’t as daunting for the return trip as we were expecting.

We took a few breaks here and there. We lost our battle with the daylight and the dyno lighting on the Rando worked great. Ken and I were moving at our own pace and got back as a group of 2 with enough time to have a beer and some wings at ‘the dizz’ before heading home.
