Valentine’s Day! Had a great one. Seven of us met for a nice ride on the most level roads in the area. Mid-point was a stop at Evergreen Lodge for a snack from the little store and lots of laughter. Most of the climbing is done on the way to the Lodge (although the grade is probably only 2-3%) so most of the return trip is coasting (or pedaling if you just feel like going f-a-s-t!).
I consider today a recovery ride. 22 miles round trip. Average speed: doesn’t matter.
