Back in the Day

WNR report: The weather was far from cooperative last night, and I think that had something to do with a low rider turnout. It was in the upper 40's and raining steadily when six of us set out on the Loop just after six last night. It was like a blast from the past in some respects with Sarge, Marcus, Scott, and Mike in the group. I can't remember the last time the five of us rode together, but I know it's been a number of years. Hugh was the sixth rider to join us in the rain. Going out for a ride in the rain is always tough mentally, but once you get started it almost always turns out to be a good ride. It's not like you're going to melt or anything. All things considered we had a good ride (even if it was getting a little to dark to see by the end). At least another dozen people showed up for the post-ride festivities and to catch up with Sarge. A special thanks goes out to Hugh for putting in my new headset and fork before the ride. It was nice to get back on the singlespeed with a fork that has more than 2mm of travel. I'm loving 80mm now, thanks. Got the wedding in two days, and so far the weather looks good. No rain and a high of 55 for Saturday. Then it's off to Asheville for a little vacation. Hope everyone has a good weekend. Thanks for reading.
