First bike ride of the New Year!

Jillian, Gordon, Amanda, & Sean
Route: Around lower SoLo, out to Polly Judd Park and back.

A beautiful, sunny, chilly day! We had a lovely ride! Gordon on his ridiculous new mountain bike, the rest of us on our reasonable, rational, reliable street bikes : ).

Can't wait to do it agian!


I'm really late posting this. Spokefest was, like, 5 months ago. Early September. I don't feel like looking up the exact date right now.

HOWEVER: It was totally awesome. You have your choice of rides (9 miles, 22 miles, 48 miles). Gordon and I did the 22 mile ride, although considering that we also rode down to the event and back, it ended up being more like 26 miles. The course goes west along the river, then east back up it. MY FIRST TIME EVER BIKING UP DOOMSDAY HILL-------and I made it!!! Thanks to Gordon's excellent coaching! We are very much looking forward to participating again next year!
