Today we went on our normal bike ride around Stafford VA, leaving at 0800 sharp. Probably the coolest morning since last spring with the temps in the mid 50’s. Daron, Steve and I showed up to ride in shorts and short sleeve jerseys, ensuring we follow the rules…
Specifically rule # 21 which states:
” Rule #21
“Knickers, vests, arm warmers, shoe covers, and caps beneath your helmet can all make you look like a hardman, when the weather warrants their use. If it isn’t wet or cold, save your Flandrian Best for Flemish weather. Velominati Website”
It is obvious Casey could not adhere to the rules based on his body temps:
We all felt he just needed to adhere to rule 5 as well…
We got our bikes together together in short order as the morning sun rose in the sky. Casey dressed in wool kickers and arm warmers…here he appears to be dressing from behind his car door:
All in all we had a great ride – doing the reverse Hartwood 49 mile loop through Stafford County and beyond. At the end, Debbie took a group shot as everyone prepared to depart.
