wow, what a turnout! 22 riders show up on a damn cold inky black 'morning' and 21* arrive in one piece, not bad. i have never seen a line *out the door* at ritual at 6:10am -- the cashier was so impressed he asked me to email him photos.
hats off to the 4 or 5 new riders who made the trip with nary a complaint despite the icy tundra on tunnel road, frequent dicey traffic situations, and the brakeless kemler riding with a cavalierly loose chain.
*the one casualty of the ride was the normally indomitable Jason G., who was so completely relaxed in the cyclocross section that he forgot about the 5" lip and got acquainted with the concrete edge, damaging his Record shifter, hand, and mojo. Reports indicate he caught a train in PA and made it down to the office in santa peninsula somewhere.
overall a super gorgeous ride with excellent if slightly chilly conditions. hope to see some of y'all next week on a less 'glamorous' day, say monday, mmm?
some crappy photos:
PS - PC still lives on the peninsula... something must be done.
PPS - the Andrew Fort award for least cycling-like clothing goes to Andy
