Did a great ride out to Great Brook Farm today with a very nice Ciclismo group. We stuck to a moderate 13mph pace, so it was all very relaxed. Perfect for an Indian summer day like this! Plenty of leaves everywhere, temperature peeking into the 60s!
For our snack at Great Brook Farm, I brought a pannier of Kim's famous apple hand pies and a big thermos of hot mulled cider.
In addition to my clever handlebar bags doubling at compact color-coordinated panniers, I made use of the eyelets on my saddle and a pair of good old leather toe straps to carry the thermos! Toe straps are a completely underappreciated cycling accessory!
