November is here, with it comes giving thanks, facial hair and the chill of fall. Getting ready for the Saturday ride is starting to take extra time, thought and motivation. So many options for the balancing act that is staying warm but not too warm on the bike. It gets a little harder each week to open the garage door when your sitting on your cozy couch with a hot cup of Joe. Get off the couch we must. At least for those who don't have the luxury of riding whenever we want. The most bitter part for me is riding down the hill to meet the bunch. When I round the corner and see familiar faces waiting I'm always glad I did.
On the other side of the fall foliage peak.
It took about 45 minutes for the bunch to start chatting.
We road easy for a bit.
Dropping in to the PG battlefield.
After descending through a tree tunnel.
It opens up to this great view.
Without words the rotation starts and tempo was set. Another great morning.
