We had 7 riders show up for an impromtu 2:00 p.m. Easter Sunday afternoon ride. New rider who responded to the Hub Times photo and contact info, Steve, gave it a go along with, Tom, Ed, Ross, Amanda, Howard and Michael.
It was beautiful spring weather with temps tickling above 70 degrees and the sun shining. We went down 303 to Truxell into the valley and tried to keep the first 5 miles of roll out below 15 mph. Amanda peeled off early and headed back to Solon fighting a respiratory infection but was solid in her effort. The we screamed down into the valley and looped around Hale Farm and back up Riverview to Peninsula and finished up back Truxell. No time trial, too early in the season for that nonsense. Just a nice ride with a little hill work. We stopped at the stop signs and made a good name for cycling early in the season. 33 miles in total and a pace around 16.3 mph.
