Front Range Recumbent Trikes & Bikes Group Ride

The local weather has been iffy at best, cold, light snow or freezing drizzle but Saturday Dec. 1st. turned out to be good enough to have a FRRTBG Group Ride. Mid. 40f's sunny but will a chilly breeze so I was bundled up with 3 layers of clothes! I got to the start point at the Fontenaro St. Trail Head of the Legacy Loop in Colorado Springs, the ride left at 11 AM, with just "ME" as the group, LOL. Headed south on the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail to America the Beautiful Park in down town Co. Springs. I stopped to use a porta-potty and ran into another member, Rodger, who'd been on the "Chasing Santa 15K bicycle ride" that ended in the park so he decided to come along on the group ride with me. We headed out going west on the Midland Trail towards Manitou Springs but had to turn around at Ridge Road as the trail is blocked off due to trail/road construction. Some dark clouds were starting to appear so we rode back to the park where I left Rodger and I rode north to the Trail Head and packed the trike back in the van to head home. 12+ miles RT., not bad for a December day in CO. :)

Rodger and his trike and trailer rigged up for the Holiday's! :)
