First, I want to apologize for some of the mix-ups at the ride. I wasn’t familiar with the entire course, and had never been to Clark Forest before. If it had just been the gravel and steep inclines, that would have been one thing. However, I was a bad navigator, and caused a few of us to add more miles (and time) than planned.
Tim did a great job talking about went well with the ride. I had a lot of fun, some of the time. I also felt I had let the group down.
I like Tim’s suggestion to plan another ride out here, and I hope yesterday’s ride doesn’t scare anyone off from another ride. I will learn routes better before announcing them, and will warn of gravel, steep grades, or anything else appropriate.
