Dec-28: 'No-Name' Route

Well, the Range Road Rover Holiday tradition made it 5-years, but in this, the wannabe 6th year, when it appeared that it would be only IvaHawk and me, and Iva indicated that he hadn't ridden anything close to 65-miles for a few months, we scaled back to the 47-mile Creedmoor-Grissom route.  

When Ricochet showed at the last moment, dragging some TLC riders, we stuck to the 47-mile plan.  The TLC people were doing a much shorter around-the-lake ride.  

As we approached Creedmoor, Robert asked if we should take the short-cut through the neighborhood.  Shocked as we were that Robert had remembered the short-cut, IvaHawk & I agreed.  However, when we got to NC-50 to cross over to Dove Rd, we realized that we were now doing the "wrong" course, and that we weren't going to get anywhere near a 50-mile ride (which had become Iva's goal).  We managed to talk Robert into riding up Beaver Dam / Rock Spring Ch Rd to Bruce Garner and adding 6-miles back on to the unintentionally shortened route.  You won't be surprised to learn that Robert was quite willing to ride UP the 4-mile detour.  

The resulting route, though it's been ridden before, has never been named -- thus the title of this post.

We three had a good time.  But unless people come out of the woodwork to do RRR on Monday or Tuesday, the RRR Holiday tradition will have passed.
