Good ride to Bancroft, really wet on return; where was that 17 degrees and partly sunny?

You guys should have headed down here...sunny and 76* all afternoon. Had a nice ride.
I'll have to ride up there to see you all again sometime.

good lunch

Nice ride to Bancroft on dry roads, and enjoyed a good lunch with friends. But light rain all the way home to Kingston.

Good to see everyone again and to meet Angus. I reran the top of Old Hastings Road in the pouring rain. The last time I was on that section I crashed and broke my big toe almost two years ago.

It was good to meet everyone, and the lunch was nice too! I rode through rain and drizzle from Bancroft almost all the way to the 401. But once I was on the 401, it was dry and sunny all the way home. A good day!

Hi everyone. My wife and I bumped into a few of you at the Timmies in Port Perry where we'd stopped to warm up on the way up to the casino for breakfast. Would have liked to have joined you on your ride to Bancroft but we really weren't prepared for the weather. After we ate we had a very chilly and wet ride back to Whitby. You all looked to be dressed appropriatly for the weather so hopefully no one got too cold or soaked.

Hopefully at some point this season we'll be able to join you for a ride somewhere.

Cheers,
John & Karen

Too bad you didn't join us! You missed the excitement, a house burning to the ground just as we came into Bancroft. I know it burned to the ground because I passed it on the way home. Nothing left but the chimney.
