The RCCS ride this morning turned out to be a solo ride. The usual characters that like to ride in any weather were unavailable. The weather chased off the rest.
I set out just after 9:00 am with light rain. The predicted thunderstorm never materialized, but it was windy and rainy. The rain would sometimes stop, and there was even some occasional sun.
I felt weak and slow during the ride. I averaged just under 10 mph. That’s slow even for me.
The original route was going to be 57 miles. I made several wrong turns, as I often do, but still enjoyed the ride. At 36 miles into the ride I was done. I don’t know why, but I didn’t feel like riding any further. I called for a ride home.
Despite the abrupt ending, I was glad I got out and rode the bike.
