Annually my informal group of women riders do a FROSTY ride. First Ride Out Startng The Year. The same two friends host us for the event and we have been doing it for many years. There was only one year that we got rained out and one year that we actually had sun!

This day eight of us had a fine day in the saddle as we did our short route around Marysville.

Cloudy and overcast day with quite a chilll in the air, but a great riding day.

Our route was mainly on side streets and we had very little traffic on this New Year’s Day ;’-). At the riverside we took a short trail to enjoy views and a snack. At the end of the trail is this newly added fish ‘tower’.



As usual, after the ride we gathered at our hosts’ house for (lots of) food and frivolity. This has become quite a nice tradition for us and there have been anywhere from 6 to 18 riders!

Just a great day all around that I am grateful for.

    Good time and a great way to start the New Year.
    Tree reflection photos are perfect — also indicating NO WIND. 🙂

    Thanks Rich. Definitely a great way to start the year. No wind was a real plus on this cold day!

      Thank you Em. I do feel fortunate to share rides with friends who love it as much as I do. On to the new year now ;’-)
