A Ghostly Sub 16: 4) Friday 04/12/13
25 mi w/Jess, B. - Edge was out there but didn't ride with us.
Edge rode out early at 5:00p, he was on his way back when we passed as ships in the night.
I didn't go out till 5:40p, Jess was just getting back from Turlock, she needed her Baldy fix.
Anyway it was a beautiful evening in Paradise...
Except for the car that was on the wrong side of the road when I was going down the Reward climb.
Holy Moly,  I was looking right at his grill, started skidding, the bike was getting sideways,
so I got off the brakes and and went off into the dirt and stopped before going off the side.
Yow lucky!  I kept it upright, and only got a flat front tire, but still thanking my luckly stars...
Continued the ride and met B at the Maint shack, and the 3 of us rode back to MBV.

Wet Wednesday, cold too.
It started off at 52 degrees when we left the Village.
It just got foggier, colder, and was drizzling as we got further out.
At 10 mi we had enough and turned around a couple short of the normal turnaround.
It was 45 degrees when we got back to MBV, Burrrr!
