Fall Classic was populaire this year...

Maybe 40 people or so at the start.

Amazing fall colors.

These were dangerous horses as indicated by the "Danger Horses" sign.

It was a great ride. For the past few years it has been a rainy slug fest but this year it was absolutely amazing. We had a 7 am start this year. If you like riding a bike this is the ride to do! Fall colors, lots of quiet back roads and fall colors. What more could you ask for. (other than the Village Cup Bakery which was not on route this year) :)

I was planning on the 200k but opted for the 100k at the last minute. It was nice to get in earlier and spend time chatting and eating pizza rather than getting in and just running home. Plus work was much more enjoyable today as I climbed up ladders and such all day.

It is interesting to reflect back to 4-5 years ago and the change in fitness level when a ride like this would have wrecked me for a day or 2 afterwards. Looking forward to years to come which will hopefully include more time to ride and longer brevets, I'd like to try a 400k as my longest ride thus far is the 300k.

Geeking out on cue sheets!

Getting ready for the Fall Classic. I tend to zone out and miss tricky turns so I'm adding mini maps to my cue sheet.

Fall classic 200k...

Looking forward to this weekend, the beautiful and cafe filled fall classic ride. Lots of dirt, climbing and beatiful leaves, pastries and coffee.
