Inaugural ride of the Springfield Sunrise Coffee & Bicycle Club. After stumbling on the idea for a coffee, cycling and general small urban adventuring sort of thing going on in other cities, I made a Facebook group and posted to my friends to see if they were interested. Luckily several "liked" the idea and I had at least one other crazy person to meet me in the wee light before dawn.
Today's ride to coffee outside was to Jordan Valley Park. Just Jim and I made the trip across town. With the forecast in the upper 40s to lower 50s and rainy, it may have kept others away. We were either brave or foolish, but had fun. I got soaked on the way home to ready myself for work, though. 9-10 miles for me, round trip. Jim rode closer to 15-16, I'm guessing, but he rides adventure races across entire states, so I'm pretty sure it wasn't too hard on the guy. ;)
