After a week of suffering with the creeping crud, I dragged myself out to the 2004 Valentine’s Day Ride. The first ten miles left me feeling like death, but then came my second wind and all was well. Mileage for the day: 34.0.
Like all other CDO-run events, this was top-notch. Great route, excellent pre- and post-ride food, and plenty of hot coffee to ward off the chills.
