Oct 05: 102 Kms; 3 Hrs 23 Saddle Time; 407 Metres; 3466 Calories. Mark, Perry, Raymond, Angelo, Kevin, Jarrod, Scott, Marcel

Okay, this just about sums it up, “You just should have been there”!

Eighty to one hundred cyclists, with about an even split between the 100 kms and the 150 kms groups. Lots of flats on Ch d’Aylmer. But the warmish temperatures and good humour in plenty among the cyclists kept spirits high. And so, we were  off again before we knew we were stopped at a comfortable pace enjoying the rural sights and smells and fall colours of the Pontiac.  At least, that is until we left the four corners at the Queensline and headed towards Storyland with more urgency now than before. This is where several groups formed where once there had been one. The race was on for Quyon, and what a thrill it was. You just should have been there. But, hey, I said that before. Great ride. Super. Thumbs up. High fives all around.

Kudos to Perry and Scott for leading the charge. Kudos to Marcel and his friend for chasing them down. The smiles trumped the pain of the effort. Doesn’t it always.

Okay, that’s it for me. No ride on Sunday. Weather forecast indicates a high probability of rain. Sorry. Stay tuned for details of next weekend.
