||We decided to take advantage of the perfect weather for the first weekend of March and get our bikes out. Saturday we met at Bowl-Winkles. The usuals Jim, Ann, Linda, Jerry, and Wally were joined by new member Mike and UWEC student, John. John moved from Maple for better riding weather. The bright sunshine more than offset the crisp air as we headed west out E and C. It was an excellent chance to catch up and start building base again.
Sunday was even warmer and we had a bigger group: Jim, Wally and Mike, plus Scott, David, Steve and newcomer, Jeff left from Fairfax wondering if we had dressed too warm. Sarah met us at the turn-about and we realized there was still a little nip in the air. We took our normal route south on Lowes Creek and then headed west to W, across Marsh and Hemlock to Z. It turned into a little longer ride than we had planned, but after a winter of skiing or riding indoors, everyone was ready to do a little extra.
