A bit cooler this morning but looked to be a very nice morning, something to really look forward to when the forecast show 10 solid days of rain ahead. As I’ve said so many times before, any day you can see your shadow is a good day. 10 days straight of gray is not.
Just Eric at the start, but we picked up Markus (that’s the third way I’ve spelled his name and, according to Ludo, possibly the first time I’ve spelled it correctly… maybe?) before the start of the climb, caught up to Millo at the park entrance, and Ludo caught up to us from behind shortly after that. This was a completely different group than Tuesday, with the exception of Markus’s brief visit (he heads home shortly after we hit Skyline).
37 degrees was the coolest spot, a bit warmer up on Skyline and 41 degrees on west-side Old LaHonda, making this possibly our last ride in the 30s this season (even though it’s a “cold” storm heading in, the cloud cover means it isn’t likely to drop below the mid-4os). No rabbits yet; I think they’re waiting for it to warm up a bit more (although Eric says he’s seen them around his house, up in the hills above Los Gatos).
Do I really believe we’re going to have 10 days of rain starting tomorrow? No. Experience tells me that it’s very rare that we ever go more than three days before a break in the action. Unfortunately, it’s even more rare that such a break in the rain coincides with when I can ride!
