However, she neglected to bring Arizona weather with her! 9 of us started out from DeVargas this AM in hazy sunshine and light winds. However, I was concerned about what might be coming when Bill P showed up in long pants. I, of course, had my full winter kit. We rode out Old Pecos and by the time we got to Rabbit Rd the wind was pretty strong in our faces. At Richards the sky looked a little threatening. We decided to head toward Gov Miles and eventually South Meadow. By Cerrillos the clouds looked very threatening with precip apparent in the distance. At Alameda precip was all around us but not yet on us, however, we had a nice strong tail wind. Then the snow started in earnest. We exited and took the River Trail back and by St. Francis the snow had stopped. But I had thoughts of racing in Belgium on Sunday when they started in 1 degree C weather with snow, rain, hail, and eventually sun. Everyone made it back to DeVargas safe and sound. 21 miles, 15.5avg with only 1300 ft of gain, but the tail wind helped on most of the uphill. FWIW, according to my Garmin temperature, we started at 58 degrees and ended at 46 degrees. Beer was consumed at 2nd St.
Judy still needs to control her visitor load so please do not just show up. Thanks.
