Friday Breakfast Ride

A great morning ride. It was 48 deg this morning when I left the house at 5:15 to meet the SPP early riders for breakfast. I wore knickers which come down below my knees and have just a slightly thicker construction than regular bike shorts for warmth. A light weight wool base layer, a short sleeve jersey, a wind breaker and long fingered gloves. I was actually just a tad warm. I probably could have zipped the sleeves off of my jacket and worn it as a vest, with the upper back ventilated. When I took the jacket off to sit for breakfast I realized I was a little damp with perspiration which then induced a slight chill.

That much detail is for my own benefit dear reader next time I'm trying to figure out how to dress for the current temps. If it's too much info for you... well it's my blog.

5 of us met at the Rusty Bridge at 5:45 and we picked up two more a mile in to the ride on Jennings Road. I enjoy these rides at a conversational pace. Everyone catches up on how the week has been, weekend plans coming up, and any news or excitement they have to share.

Once in Annapolis I met Rod and Doug for breakfast at C & R while the rest of the bike crew went to for the quicker service at Hard Bean. Had a great visit with friends then rode home in the bright morning sun. A great start to the day.
