80 miles total, up to Tranquility, over to L&C, down to Manawa, over to Swanson, then back home. Alll trails were very rideable... Swanson was starting to just barely get greasy in a few corners. the ride up Keystone back home was very wet and windy. Weather.com said it was 46 degrees when I left my house at 7:05am, and when I checked again at 3:30pm it still said 46 degrees. Yikes. Munson & I rode from midtown and met Dale & Mike2 at Tranquility for a lap. Soon after Dale wanted to do his own fixie pace and graciously sent myself and Mike & Mike up the road to do our own pace. It was probably a good call as we had to keep pedalling pretty hard to stay warm. No way I would've kept riding in those conditions without the camaraderie-- thanks guys. It was a good ride.
Edit: Munson has a good writeup here.
