It's just two weeks till D2R2 and I wanted to get in a good training ride to ensure my worthiness to climb the massive dirt road climbs for Franklin (MA) and Windham (VT) counties on the D2R2 115K Route this year. I reached out to my brother-in-law Will and asked if he wanted to ride Mt Riga starting from the Roe Jan Brewery in Hillsdale, NY.

I didn't ride Tuesday because it rained again in the morning and I had dinner plans with my uncle and his family. On Wednesday, after work, I headed out on the singlespeed to ride to the Tighthead Brewery. It was pretty hot, nearing the 90s but again the slight breeze that seems to be always blowing and the lack of humidity made riding here very enjoyable - what can I say, I like the heat.

Up until this point I have basically just been riding solo but I had been continually keeping an eye out for a group to join. Through one of the cycling Meetups I found a post from a northern suburbs guy looking for others to ride with so I messaged Darren and said that I would love to ride with you since I am in the same vicinity.

I have always wanted to ride my singlespeed through a city and today I was going to ride through Chicago. From her house and back it was around 65 miles and despite a little early unpleasantness it turned out to be a really nice day.
