Juames and I rode some familiar dirt roads in and around Almonte, Clayton, Blakeny, and a few other areas. California Road and similar stuff... plus a few light trails but nothing nasty.

I made a poor wardrobe choice and rode with only a light technical fabric shirt as my base layer, then my pressure suit, and the outer layer was my "Kemptville dinner jacket" (as appropriately named by Hosebag). It was just fine between 12pm and 1:30pm, but for the 3 hours before and the 2 hours after, I was absolutely freezing.

I managed to tweak a hand guard and thump my hip pretty good during a low-side on some grassy two-track off Tatlock Road. No big deal, a few Advils and a drink of Jameson's will fix it up.

Having such nice weather at this time of the year is a real treat. ... It's just unfortunate it's only nice for about 3 hours during the middle of the day.
