Dugg Hill, yes I had to climb it. I got stung by a bee two years ago, going over the top. It's a lot steeper than it looks.
Ride start and finish.
I rode this ride Saturday because Sunday was going to be a washout. I started about 9:30 and finished about 1:30. This is a very hilly ride and my legs felt it for the next two days. Check out the video of this waterfall that was on the ride.
Our President and Vice President answered questions all day about the club.
Trek was there all weekend showing off their new models.
These water views were only on the 43 mile loop.
There's a lot of history in this area.
I started at 8:30, I wanted to get back in time to take photo's and mingle a while. This is our annual opener for the club when the start times go back to 10:00. It was chilly at the start and it took a while for my feet and hands to warm up. I haven't worn my winter boots and gloves for a couple of weeks and I'm not going back to them now. I ended up with 43.5 miles for the day.
This could have been called the Cranberry Bog ride, there were tons of them on the ride.
This one was in the middle of the road as we came down it.
John, enjoying the ride.
John and I had a great time yesterday doing the club ride. It wasn't too cold, there was no wind and the ride was very scenic. John had been fighting a cold all week but you wouldn't know it by his riding. I managed to stay in my big ring the whole ride, it wasn't hilly at all. We ended up with 43.5 miles for the day.
This race starts today with qualifying through Saturday, eliminations on Sunday. I've been lucky enough to attend this race in Florida and hopefully will make it again in a couple of years.

There always seems to be an ice cream shop on our rides.
I knew I was pushing it, trying to ride three days in a row, this early in the year. But I couldn't pass up on another 60 degree day and went for it. I knew I was in trouble when 5 miles into the ride my legs were hurting. So I decided I would do the short loop, 18 miles. I got back to the start right before the club was about to start and my computer showed 23.5 miles. I thought I rode further than 18 miles.
The club John and I belong to has a slogan for volunteering, it's called Get In Gear. John has always found the time to Get in Gear and has arrowed numerous rides for the club over the years. Unfortunately the last half dozen rides John has arrowed have been either snowed or rained out. Just like yesterdays ride. Hopefully that will change, we hate to see all that hard work go to waste.
