Red Strom sighted this AM in Cold Spring.

I spotted a red Strom (couldn't tell which size) this morning (12/12) at Fishkill Road and Route 9 near Cold Spring, NY.

It's about 20 degrees out there!

The guy was either smiling or his face was frozen into a painful grimace.

If he ever thaws out, he's welcome identify himself the interest of expanding the Mid Hudson Wee Club roster, now boasting four members, a 33 1/3 % increase over this time last year.

That was me, had a nice ride and yes it was a bit nippy. The heated gear handled the cold for the most part.

I'll tell you this, no eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn.

There is a small (4 members) very informal WeeStrom group (One Rockland, two Dutchess, one Orange). Three in our 60's, one in his 30's. Two slowpokes, two more hard driving.

Let me know if you're interested in getting together in the Spring.

New member, new rider

New member to this group (today), and a new rider (Sept 1 2009). Dutchess County is where I call home, interested in connecting with other riders for group touring around the Hudson Valley area.... once it warms up!
