It was a damp and cold day for riding, but six of us faced the weather for a delightful day riding on the Centennial Trail. Hot chocolate at the Java Haus could not have been better earned. Bonus — a covered bridge in Lake Stevens. ;’-).

Cindy was the most decorated with flowers and lights on her bike.

There were some red bushes nearby us.

Raquel had her red and white bike.

And we had our lunch stop at the end of our cold ride (cold toes and fingers for some) at the red Java Haus.

Not red (well, there is my pannier), but we crossed under a covered bridge that most had not seen before. And it is right here near the trail. The things you miss when you do not get off the bike trail!

This was a great group that often ends up riding together on club rides (it is a slower ‘social’ pace that we like), and we were pleased to get in a ride before days of rain begin.

      So true. They warm up all around you.

    Looks like Cindy should have been riding with us to Christmas Tree Lane the other night!

    By the way, excluding holiday lights and flowers, that setup on the bike’s rear end looks the same as my Ogre: Topeak trunk bag/panniers and Cygolite blinkie. My blinkie even sags like that.

      There was a small Christmas ride that the club did on Sunday. A few riders attended, neither Cindy nor I could make it.

      Her bike is a Specialized I think — or maybe she was on her Jamis.

    More and more red! 🙂
    Cold and icy patches on the roads here — red is on hold for now.

      That could be coming our way Rich, but for now only the air FEELS icy when it hits a part of my face that is not covered!

    I love the flowers and lights – well done on getting out in less than ideal conditions 🙂

      I try ;’-). Rode in less than stellar yesterday as well — but quite short ;’-)
