Met Rick and JB at the Gate at eight. It's been rainy this week but this morning was clear and not windy. JB said it was 34°F at the Summit - did you know there's a weather station you can call? The number is 925-838-9225 and you get a recording that gives the current temp and wind conditions.
There were a few guys riding today - but no Dudley... hope he's OK.
At the Junction a guy asked me about my booties, he didn't have any and wanted to know if they worked... YUP. He admitted his feet were pretty cold.
Then we went down to the SG Kiosk for a quick loop and back up. Some guys passed us on the way back up but Rick caught all of them save one.
And then Bagle Street Cafe at Encina Grande Center, it's a great après ride place but understaffed so you sometimes have to wait a long time just for a bagle and a cuppa.
