Dec-24: 4th Annual IR Holiday RRR

2008 - pre-dating this blog.  Dec-27th.  Lt. Dave and me.  First time doing the entire Range Road "loop" for each of us.  (In 2008, we did the ENTIRE length of Range Road.  Since then, we have almost always turned onto Little Mountain Rd  to get into Stem.  Shorter, flatter, safer, and we can claim we went for a "little mountain ride".)

2009 - Dec-24th, it was cold.  Lt. Dave, Red Rocket, IvaHawk, me.  Funny thing, on today's ride, Lt. Dave could only remember the fun parts.

2010 - Dec-24th, I think it was mild.  Biggish group for us.  I'd have to look at the blog post to recall everyone; but I'm pretty sure the cast included Lt. Dave, Red Rocket, IvaHawk, Gary, Levi, Robert, me.  As this is now a memory test -- I guess I'll now have to check and discover ... the facts.

2011 - Reasonable temps.  Maybe around 38-F when we started at 0800; about 50-F when we finished at about 1230.

The cast:

  • short-cutters:  Mallet and Tito.  Each had family obligations, with dire consequences if they were late.  They took  the Robert's Chapel cut-off.  No subsequent information available at this time. 
  • full course:  Lt. Dave, Red Rocket, IvaHawk, his guest Shane, Ricochet Robert, BobH, Norris, me

A reasonable ride, I think.  However, as I type this, I can't recall much.  I may have to come back later and turn this into a "story".  Wonder if I'll recall enough FACTS to write a story, or if I'd have to mostly FABRICATE.

In the meantime:
Merry Christmas to all, and to all A Goodnight.

  1. Thanks for what has become a "holiday" tradition. It turned out to be a nearly perfect day for riding. Thanks to Martin for hanging back with me on a day when I was slow or everyone else was fast. Merry Xmas to all the Irregulars.
