Early Birds North North North -- A Chilly Wind

This may be the last Sunday of the season Py rode to the start -- before time change to DST. Just dawn and light enough to get out at 6:32 -- relying on passive/reflective visibility on shoes, bike and yes closes for the first few minutes... good there is not much (if any) traffic that early.
The sun sill below the horizon (right), compare to just two weeks earlier about same time and place (left) -- riding towards Wading River -- and a slight chill in the air.

left: quite exactly two weeks ago 6:50am, right: today 6:54am.

The group, basically just a few of the old core birds. Some good work needed to overcome the NorEastern wind -- cross/head winds to face all the way out. Marco, Trevor, Rick, Gerald and Py did most of the work. What a re leave at the turn around point towards the Cutchogue Deli.


A hot coffee, well not so hot at all, felt good. Moving on, steady and fairly fast for the small goup. On 111 Py chased up on Marco&Rick... G hanging on. Lost G on 51. Marco, Rick, Py left -- Py, M, Rick finishing, then G and later the rest of the group.

Heading home, Py felt kind of cold and out of energy -- but still managed the regular return on NC. Good for reviving: recovery banana... mix & hot shower :-)
