Meanwhile, the Maple Wheelers enjoyed a fantastic ride last night. Those who didn’t make it definitely missed out. Despite high winds, 14 or so riders showed up. There were a lot of faces I hadn’t seen in a while (for better or worse — ha ha), as well as a new one that I hope will continue to join us. I regret deciding to leave my camera at home. We’re such a sexy-looking bunch when we get together. It’s a pity not to faithfully chronicle that for posterity (or posteriority, as the case may be).
The highlight of the evening (I think — it’s so difficult to select just one) was the three-mile stretch on Horton Road, from Crockett to Berkey. Kirk, Bart, and I capitalized on the tailwind, settled into a paceline, and opened it up. We managed to hold 25-27 m.p.h. for the duration. That was wicked fun.
It looks like we’re in for a terrific season. The next group ride will roll out of Onsted Middle School at 6p on Monday. Come on out and give it a go. I won’t be able to make it, so I hope someone will send me some pictures for the website.
