In the crisp morning air, we met at Sierra Madre. We picked up a few more in Encanto Park in Duarte, by which time it had warmed up just enough for a comfortable ride. We rode down the San Gabriel River Trail to Whitter, then crossed over to the Upper Rio Hondo Trail back to Arcadia. Peter, Sven, and Bjoern got extra credit down the Lower Rio Hondo Trail to the Bridge. We had a nice cup of iced coffee back at Starbucks. Some of the folks who are running tomorrow at the Holiday Half Marathon in Pomona, were saving their legs. It was great to see Michael, Haroon and Johnna back!
Rob, Sven, Bjoern, Lynda, Michael, Peter, GT, Bill, Kirk, Joe. Picked up at Encanto Park: Johnna, Haroon, MikeW.
