PPTC â€œDowntown Breakawayâ€ ride. Tonight we had three leaders – all A/AA level – and three riders. One of the riders was new to the ride and kept up a good BB pace – perhaps we can pip him for BB ride leader. I was really strong on Chain Bridge Road today, so the hills are definitely coming back to me. The wind caused our route to be detoured in a few places due to fallen trees, which added another good hill near the beginning of the ride.
