Cold and wet , this December day started too early. Luckily, there were only a few of us this morning and collectively, our motivation was at something of a low. Yes, the rain had dampened our spirits. We stayed hunkered down at the Goat until nearly 10am, waiting for a several flurries of light rain to pass. After nearly an hour and a bit too much coffee, we seized what we thought was a break in the rain, but instead headed out onto the Creek Trail into another gentle sprinkle.
Brian was the only one with a fender, so we all got a little bit of gunk on our faces as we proceeded out on the dirt section of the path toward Willowside. Despite the precipitation, it felt good to be outside and pedaling.
The route took us from Willowside to Piner, on Olivet and West Olivet to Slusser, then left on Mark West Station, right on Starr to Windsor and back by the airport. We maintained a good steady pace, through wet and even wetter sections, but luckily avoided any serious deluge. Good times were had by all.
