I said it in the email blast earlier this week and I'll say it again. Rides like this one make you really appreciate warm weather rides. All but 3 three of us had enough sense to stay home tonight, but there's nothing like getting soaking wet riding through countless puddles in the rain when it's dark and 35 degrees out and then finishing the evening with some nice wet snow. There aren't too many rides under 10 miles that you can call epic, but this was one of them.
I broke out #5 and #9 of The Velominati Rules to make this ride happen!
