Just saw this thread. You'll be less than 9 miles from my house at the Village Garden Cafe.

Had I seen it earlier, I'd have met you for lunch and a ride.

Be safe. Good back roads through Goochland, Louisa and Hanover to the GreenTop/Gander area.

Price of a phone call to check if they are open -10 cents

Glad you guys had fun. It was cold here too, but not 26 degrees cold.

This ride should have been called the "We bite off more than we could chew ride" or maybe "I bit off more than Tom could chew". Or even "Why would anyone do this sort of thing"?

We never even made it to Gander Mountain Pretty cold and VERY windy. Beautifull sun and really nice roads, just a little far in these conditions. Nine hours and 312.7 miles is enough.

I messed up, it wasn't 26F but it was close:



What's that under my tires?

Any ride is a GOOD ride

Yea I was going to take a bunch of pictures but my fingers were frozen to my gloves, it was a ride, so it was a good ride. Oh yea it was so cold that Roger's GPS stopped working, yea and that look on my face was pleasure, that place looked to fancy for me, a Big Mac is all I want after riding near two hundred miles in 28 degree weather.
