PPTC “Good ‘Ol Poolesville” ride. A great ride, despite threatening weather. About 10 rider showed up, most were A-pace riders who had made it to Warrenton (unlike me). However, the pace was conversational for most, and I had a great time. I felt like I didn’t expend too much effort on the ride, and I concentrated on keeping a good spinning cadence going throughout. Regardless, I helped drive the pace of the ride (somewhat to the chegrin of the ride leader, though she also rode my pace by the end), so I felt good about that.

Okay, I didn’t get up as early as I’d wanted, so Warrenton was out of the question (pity, as it was reportedly a great ride). So what did I do? A solo ride, of course. I ended up celebrating the autumnal equinox by riding the PPTC “Summer Solstice from the City” route – not bad, right? I actually amended the route a bit, adding distance and hills in Potomac while nixing the return through Rock Creek Park.
