New Year’s Day

Drink up Quick the group ride starts in 7 hours
Despite the fact that we stayed out pretty late by our standards we did get up and get at it early on New Years day.
The plan was to meet up with the lodge group and ride 40 or so…  
We did meet up with the group but it was a pretty small and kinda quick moving bunch…  a little more ambitious that we wanted to be.
we decided to just let them go and do our own thing…
Don't spill it

Our own thing was basically riding from Jax Beach through Nocatee…. stopping for hot chocolate…  then riding back into a chilly headwind.  It rained on us pretty much the entire way but we had dressed pretty well for it and really once you get out there in the elements and start moving you basically just take the elements as a given in the equation and soldier on.

Just to illustrate that we are not all work and no play…  after the ride we came home, got thawed out and dried out then ate bacon, eggs and toast, split a bottle of champagne and took a nap.
great way to start off the year.
