Back on the Bottle

For the first time in seven weeks the Wednesday Night Drinking Club was up and running last night. I met Jonathon and Dennis at Corn Mill Shoals for Dennis's last ride ever. He is getting married Friday and will be trading in the bike for a lawnmower and shovel (congratulations Dennis!). We started the ride by doing loops on the rock and then Dennis headed for home to get a head start on his impending doom while Jonathon and myself played around for another couple of hours. It was colder than I expected and we could see and feel the ground freezing as we rode. Jonathon wanted to go back across Little River but for the second time recently I had to veto his plan as being too risky and foolish.

Along the way we encountered a downed tree on the bad side of a blind corner on Pine Tree and even though it was seriously pushing my saw's capabilities we had it cut in three minutes:



We rode until 9:30. Biggest WNDC in awhile:
