Another One in the Books!

Another great ride launched from Kelley Acres this crisp New Year's Day. We had a nice group of 15 (+/-) show up on another exciting adventure through the countryside.

This temperature reading does not reflect the wind chill

There was definitely some left over winds from New Year's Eve

Not to be out done by Ray Train's "Season's Greetings" kit. T-man shows up with his "Happy New Year 2009" tiara. He managed to keep it secure the whole ride. It seemed the drag factor was taking it's toll the last few miles. I nix'd the Gortex vest before roll out.

Just a little detour after riding on the highway

Lesley may be small in stature but she is mighty in strength. Not only on the bike but also yanking on the porta john door at the Canal Road pee stop. I swear I thought the door handle was stuck at the halfway point. No one could possibly be in the thing it's 20deg. and there was one car in the parking lot. Oops, sorry Lesley, my bad for the encouragement. I had no idea that lady was in there. I thought she should have spoke up sooner. She was pretty surprised at the crowd when she came out.

Lumpy turned on his local charm and showed Jen C. a short cut back to Kelley Acres via Reno Monument Road. All I can say is it made an impression. He must not have been at his best because didn't get to experience Lambs Knoll.

Fast Freddie cooked up some yummy chili and warm bread for post ride. It was gone before I could take a picture.

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year from Kelley Acres!

Lesley ...she's such a beast! Can't wait to join you on the next Kelly Acres ride!

Sounds like a great ride, complete with the usual Kelly Acres entertainment, this time in the form of some poor, unsuspecting lady in a porta-john. Hope she can look back on it with the same amusement!
