"Blackford Pacing" all the way there (avg 14). A good ride over all not to cold in the morning the gravel roads were covered in ice and snow making it easy going all the way there. The actual ride wasn't to bad I did miss the bear tent in rippey but had a good baked potato bar at the church. The ride back to perry from rippey seemed long and kind of boring (everyone else had already road back) Got some time to set and chat with Steve for a couple hours at the bar in Perry. Steve and I decided to ride home even though everyone else took rides. The ride home was extra work since the roads had thawed out and turned to muddy mush. We actually aimed for the snow and ice spots. I made it home around 7pm the earliest ever from a "party" ride. I don't know about this more riding than drinking but I'll figure it out.
