Saturday Group RUSA Ride
I met Mary F at the skating rink parking lot in Mercer County Park at 5 AM this morning to do my Chicken Gristle RUSA route. The air temp was actually a little nippy at that time. But the weather forecast had said the temp was going to hit 90 today. It did! All the way to the beach in Belmar the ride pretty much flew for me. I wasn’t paying much attention to the roads. Just riding along chatting with Mary.
The road along the beach in Belmar was pretty crowded when we got there. I took in the sights. And when we hit the next controle inland we stopped to get refreshment. I downed a quart of whole milk in just a few gulps. Tasted and felt great. After that the ride slowed for me a little. And by the time we got to the US Post Office in Monmouth Junction (one of the controles in the ride) I was starting to feel the heat. Kept getting to me more and more until the end of the ride. We had a nice stop at the Rocky Hill free library. Nice restroom there along with a water fountain that pumped out cold water.
