#396 / #188
Friday, January 8th
I whipsawed poor Red Leader by announcing I didn't want to do hills, then picking a hilly route. Well. Kind of hilly.
9 miles in Empire Ranch (Folsom) mostly bike trails.
Overcast, but not too cold. I dithered about wearing arm-warmers but, knowing there was a long slow climb coming, decided not to wear them. Glad I skipped them.
I did stop at the top of the hill to put on a vest over my shirt and jacket. My sweaty self would get chilled bombing down the hill otherwise.
Here's our ride profile (Strava)
About 3 miles of up up up then WHEE!
Don't know when we will get out again. It is raining and Red Leader has a cold!
