Last ride of 2010

The biking year for 2010 ended on a high note.  11 of us set out from the RB for Friday breakfast.  It was 29 deg and dark.  There were still patches of ice on the trail where no sun has made it through to clear it out since the day after Christmas.  But 11 hardy souls turned out anyway, as we always do, to enjoy the sunrise, breakfast and some great camaraderie.

Jerry and I split from the pack in Annapolis to join other friends for breakfast at Chick n Ruths then rode back up the trail in time to see the 7:30 crew heading out to enjoy the same. 

8500 miles on the year, the R-12 award complete, many new friends, and a significant improvement in my health and fitness.  Other goals have been left unmet, creating an opportunity for 2011.  But I'm happy with how this one turned out. 

I'll publish my reflections on the year more thoroughly this weekend.  Thanks for following along.
