Thermometer sticks on around 40 tomorrow so roll from Mike’s at 10:00 for Bubba’s Winter Warmer. Lots of ways to short this one and we’ll pull the plug and head back to Mike’s when our toes get cold. (Yes, Pump, I’ll probably take my electric blanket in.) No climb on the route but we pass several as we head north on familiar roads for those who want to peel off. Linkon’s roads less traveled on the way back to keep our minds off our toes. 57 miles (if our toes last), 3100 feet, and easy to get it to a metric by a lap at the Bend. BASE PACE unless you want to get screamed at.
