After just a little mist and maybe a rain drop or two in the parking lot before we started the ride, all twelve of us decided to brave the elements and proceed to the Air Force Academy. One of the guards opened the second security gate onto the Academy for us, so we were quickly proceeding with the ride. After a moderate pace down Stadium Blvd, the riding got more spirited on the Pine Drive and West Monument Creek Climbs. We regrouped several times at the top of climbs, and then enjoyed the descents. A few opted for a single lap, while the rest of us went for a second. Mother Nature cooperated, and we stayed dry, and enjoyed riding in some cooler weather after the heat we've had.
