I love my Friday AM rides with my club. The only downside is that I'm usually working from home on Fridays and driving into D.C. for a recovery ride and coffee with my teammates is a bit of a production, moreso since Mandy changed jobs. The kid handoff is sometimes problematic, since she has to bring him into her firm, and you never know how that's going to be received.
The last few weeks I've had a comparable early morning spin with Jon, and Kyle joined us last week. Same principle as the muffin ride - 60 - 90 minutes, easy spin, maybe do a couple leg openers if you have a race, otherwise ride recovery, then stop at Caribou for a coffee and a muffin. Roll at 6:00 or 6:15, be done by 8:00 and all charged up to face the day. There's no set route though we've been doing a Bell Branch-450-Crownsville-Gambrill route which is rolling to flat.
If you live on this side of town and are maybe interested in joining us on Fridays, drop me a line or maybe stop by Family Bikes and talk to Jon.
