First puncture of 2010

The plan today was to join a few team mates on the “House of pain ride” out of Walnut Creek. The weather was pretty miserable at the start with fog and drizzle and this certainly seemed to impact the number of riders. The pace was pretty brisk from the off but unfortunately I punctured about 10 miles into the ride.  A couple of team mates waited back for me so we rode backwards round the route to meet up with ride again at Isabel.

The pace was a bit subdued compared to  previous HOP rides I have been on but there was some fun attacks and things near the end to get your pulse going. Enjoyable Ride despite the puncture.
