Very well matched group led to a pace faster than I expected on this route - everyone one finished within a couple of ticks of 17mph with 2700+ ft of climbing. We kept an eye on the weather, but I got surprised when it started sprinkling on us at the golf course on Broad Run. The pace quickened from there, but the rain never was heavy. Kudos to Maria
for both riding strong AND riding without gloves in 43F weather -- huh? Thanks all for making this a ride that needed no leader, it was really my pleasure.
Lets hope fall never ends
