Monday's ride at 17deg up to Tranq & back was good, now too much snow.... but if we stick to pavement we can do it!

TNR for Dec 10?
Well, probably going to be too much snow to hit any trails Thursday. Might even be too much that hasn't been cleared to hit gravel reliably. Assuming a wind will be out of the north/west, here's my proposal. Meet BlueLine Coffee downtown at 6pm, rollout 6:10pm, head north on 20th, Florence Blvd, etc... ride ponca road west and then back on calhoun road. Then Hwy 36 West to 72nd, 72nd South to state st, State St back to Wenninghoff, Wenninghoff back to Keystone, Keystone to Western, Western back to Blue Line. Basically all paved, strategically taking advantage of neighborhood streets to shield from wind when going North, with some good hills in there to keep us warm. Pace will be moderate to keep everyone warm. You can't mess around too much when its 18deg outside. Rear blinky, gloves, balaclavas, eye coverage, chemical toe warmers and hand warmers are probably a requirement. Leave a comment if you're in. I reserve the right to change route if wind conditions are different than anticipated.
