    Today was probably the nicest weather we've had all year. Or certainly in months. That explains why more people showed up today than for our typical Saturday team ride. No wind either, so I had fun taking the Aerotack with 60mm wheels out for a spin. Willy seemed content with his Pegoretti with steel fork and Shamal Milles.

    It seemed to warm up so ventured downtown, over to and around Brooklyn, up and over to Queens and back to Manhattan.

    At the furthest point from the apartment, I realized I should've worn full finger gloves and it is time to find the toe covers in the closet.

    Not cold then wind changed and cold returned. No sheep dog. The walking seal on the road made the sheep nervous.

    Squall on the horizon so didn't linger over coffee. I forget how nice riding in the morning is.

    Crunchy fun in the happy place.

    Plan "W"

    Still need a thru-axle for my Lynskey's new fork, so took the Waterford out for a spin.

    Came home a hundred kilometers later...

    Our team leads a ride out of the Rapha clubhouse once a month and today was the day. On the way to the shop I happened to bump into VSalon member @burgess1108. Great to meet you...I hope the rest of the ride was good. Sorry I had to bail early to get home. Here's a shot from the greatly reduced group that also had to get home early. As you can see, the weather was terrible this morning.

    Rub it in Matt as with the exception of the homemade "bagelettes" being warm, this morning's ride was anything but, as last evening's storm made sure that I was cold and wet.

    Rained all day yesterday, but it cleared out nicely (55F-60F) for a quick 20 miles today.

    A couple of hours Sunday afternoon on the go-anywhere-and-have-fun bike...
    The ride started under a damp and gloomy blanket but later on the sky cleared up and brought a sunny feast of saturated late fall colors.

    Although late from last week, this picture illustrate why bringing a support crew with a photographer on your rides pays dividends.
