YHC arrived just a couple minutes before 6 with no other cyclists @ Wawa. Suddenly 5 showed up all accumulating some EC with a 5AM start – nice work, men. Trump and Crabcakes had to depart at 6, leaving the fearless foursome.
No secrets this gloom. Pre blast announced we’d head to THE hill (it’s been a while), with a quick exploration through new (to some pax) areas of Braden Woods.
Plan was executed. A few new or unfamiliar roads in Braden Woods for a couple pax; essentially a circumnavigation of Braden Woods. Then 2 round trips over I75 and return. YHC escorted the pax to Hidden River then turned around for home. The other (3) pax made it back to home / Wawa safely.
Pincher and Cottontail have already murdered all the segments travelled this day, so no more bling for those dudes, but Pincher picked up a couple Local Legends. Fireball was awarded with a gob of Strava bling – a handful of PRs on his new machine, with a few >25MPH. YHC felt a lil spicy and picked up a 3rd best on LWR 2015 Sprint segment at the end of Hidden River with Fireball in tow (and only cuz I didn’t announce I’d be hunting).
Good ride today. Thanks for letting me lead!
