Our ride this evening took us to France for the Douce France route.

We had six riders tonight (Charlie, Chris, Tim D, Tim S, Zinj, and me).

Our Discord conversation started by talking about mice. I shared that my wife found a mouse in one of our traps that was still alive. She brought it outside and as it limped away, a falcon swooped down and took the mouse away!

Chris and Zinj discussed computer boards and other engineering endeavors.

We briefly talked about the Tour Down Under. Tim and I have not seen much of the official coverage, but the YouTube vlogger coverage has been enjoyable.

Charlie and Zinj reminisced about outdoor club rides in the winter. It sounded cold and miserable to me.

In our 60 minute ride, we covered approximately 21 miles with 750 feet of climbing.

Chris and Tim S earned the Douce France route achievement, which doubled their XP points for the route.
