This Illuminati ride started from the Gaelic-American Club in Fairfield, CT and again a little earlier due to the pending weather situation - strong thunder showers were predicted for the early evening hours.
Since we were riding along the shore I brought JustGoodBeerSS to the party and I wondered if I was going to be able to keep up. I could have used a little more gear for the flats but for the two little hills we had to climb I was able to get up them without any worry.
By the time we got to Longshore and saw a big lightning bolt strike, probably in Stamford, it was time to head back to Fairfield. We tried to sneak in a loop through Sherwood Island but was we pulled up to the gate they were putting up the barricades.
