"Should be a perfect day for the blingy all-road bikes that have been hiding indoors all winter."
This was in the email that Matt sent out on Saturday. After a dry ride on Saturday, I thought "Wicked, I'm gonna bust out my road bike for Sunday." After four plus hours and 114km of riding out to Cascades and Wakfield with a good crew, this was my road bike (or the worst of it):
Any bling was gone. Lessons learned: 1) Dry roads on the Ontario side does not mean dry roads on the Quebec side. 2) Don't listen to Matt.
I have to poke just a little fun at Matt, but I was also the only one in a group of 8 who showed up without fenders. DOH!
All in all, a great ride out in the sun, good company, and sore legs today.
