Mike B. sent out a group text early in the week arranging a Friday after-work ride and I kept it on my radar without committing. This afternoon was finally here and the opportunity was a good one so off I went. The weather was perfect. Fall is in the air. Temps in the low to mid 60's and cloudy skies. I arrived at Rice Pinnacle first, then Kris and Arianne K., then Ben P., and finally Mike B.
Mike led out and a chill (for those guys) pace was the order of the day. The route was one that confused Ben but was fast and fun. At just over an hour in I decided it was time for me to head back and parted ways with the group. 15 minutes later I was back at the Jeep. Thanks for the invite Mike! Thanks for not killing me, too. That was a great pace, a beautiful day for a ride, and excellent company.
