This was the second ride in the 7 ride series of Getting Ready to Ride - South End Series. Our first ride was cancelled last week because of SNOW! I thought we would be cancelling today's ride too because of weather but the rain held off. Though we had no rain on this ride we sure had wind. 25-30 wind gusts. Going north we had a tailwind but when we turned south we hit the wall of wind! It felt like we were riding in Boeing's wind tunnel. But we had 17 hardy riders show up and the ride was great. A nice workout. Here I am giving ride details and safety briefing to the riders.
