FRRTBG Group Ride, December 23rd. 2018

This ride was on a Sunday, on Saturday we had a 2 hr. "snow blizzard" hit but lucky for me with the ground being warmish, it mostly melted by very late afternoon. Sunday started out at 19F but it was up to 33F by the time of the ride! I loaded the trike in the van and got to Nancy Lewis Park at 10:00 am. got changed and the trike set up and well, nobody wanted to ride today so I started out myself! I used the Templeton Gap Rd. Bike Lane and a back street to a easement behind the sound wall of Union Blvd up to the Templeton Gap Trail and headed west to pick up the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail. Had a pit stop at Criterium Bicycles (right on the trail) picked up some Jelly Belly Sport Beans ate a Lemon Luna Bar and then headed north to pick up the Cottonwood Trail up to Vincent St. and the trail that follows the access road along Nevada Ave then under Nevada Ave. to the University Shopping Center to again pick up the Pikes Peak Greenway and head south. Turned on the Templeton Gap Trail back to the park and the van. 39F, very little wind and cloud filtered sunshine. 15.6 mile RT total. I did have to traverse about 6 places along the trails that had 1" of snow and ice" on it but never lost traction a good ride for late December! :)
