Club Rides in the Covid 19 Era

Of course, on my first official club ride of the season, I was running late.  I don’t know why.  I had actually tried to put a lot of organizational effort into the ride.  I printed up my club membership, and my Ontario Cycling membership, got a plastic case for them in case it rained.  I got my water bottle ready.

Looking back on it, perhaps I did all the thinking, but not enough of the execution.

Either way, I had to do a decent bit of riding to get to the meeting point on time.  As for wondering about whether I should be in the B or C group, it hardly mattered because of the small turnout, we formed one group anyway.  I was happy because I liked all the riders in both groups and was glad that we could all go out together.  When I say all, I mean six people.  I had ridden with all of them before and was really glad to see them out and about.

The ride did not feature too many hills, but we did a nice lap around the lake.  There was some talk of extending the ride, but the forecast called for thunder showers (which still haven’t materialized) so many of us felt caution was the better part of valour and decide on a short 5k extension.

I am tired, but finally having someone to  push me a little on the bike is certainly Today’s Perfect Moment.
