Today's gruppetto: Me, Charlie, and Evan.
Lots of riders on The Mountain.
At one point we heard what I thought was a giant tree branch cracking off and falling behind us, but it turned out it was a guy who had accidentally ridden onto the gravel shoulder and then unclipped - I know that doesn't sound like it would sound like a tree branch falling, but it did.
Why do some people prop their bikes upside down when they do a flat fix? I just don't get it.
Tarantula Tally: Four crawlers.
Wildlife Encounter: Turkeys and an owl (!)
Sun was setting as we finished the descent - but we got kind of a late start so there's probably another two weeks of Wednesday Night Rides if we start up on time.
