Hi Fellow CCC Members
The first 2018 Thursday Nighter is in the books.
There is good news and not so good news to report.
First the Good News:
10 strong riders came out tonight – this is stupendous.
About 10 years ago Dennis and I talked about mimicking the PCC ride.
Tonight was a definite strong step in the right direction.
Thank you to everybody that made it out tonight – Chapeau!
There was some rust on most of us, but like always there are a few people in very good condition to start the season.
Special tip of the cycling Chapeau to Tom Herd because he showed that time in the saddle works!
The group split up into the headwind coming back from Lakeport as expected, so that was good too.
It is of course somewhat distasteful but that is how these rides are supposed to work.
That is the carrot, the barometer, the benchmark to gauge individual fitness.
Eventually we will all get fitter and then be able to contribute to the mutual thrashings!
The start time WILL ALWAYS BE 1800 hrs or 6:00 PM.
This is so that we can have more riding time for the group.
Okay, now the not so good news:
It is going to take me about 3 weeks to get my fitness on track and it is an odd feeling!
C ya soon
