The 2024 Northampton Cycling Club outdoor group riding season is about to commence. This season, our group ride schedule will ONLY be available on Link My Ride. This will allow the club to continue many of its traditional rides and add one-off rides each week.

It just didn’t seem quite right to be doing a hillclimb tonight without Jonathan OK. He’s off on a rented bike and wearing street clothes, peeing in cornfields, and riding through Iowa for a week where they make you camp in some elementary school field and consume your weight in pie each night or they don’t allow you to ride the next day.

This morning’s ride took the 6 of us on a loop from Keyes street in Florence out to Ashfield, Conway, Whately and back home.

After six or more (?) weeks of terrible cycling weather (you name it – torrential rain, tornados, lightening, or air so heavy you can’t breathe)- today was a perfect summer cycling day.  We had nine riders enjoy a wonderful loop up to Wendell with a small detour that I had never ridden.

The 6 of us that braved the 92 degree heat and strong winds from the south and southwest at 5:30 also had to contend with an intense thunderstorm on our various trips home that also included tornado warnings and perhaps some actual tornados.

Except for some vehicular traffic that seemed to have it in for Madeline this evening, I think we mostly escaped demon farm equipment today.
