I got back from New Paltz around 4 PM which was more than enough time to prepare for the third ride with RC Ilumenati. I charged my lights the night before so all I had to do was switch bikes, put on the lights and leave for Easton by 5:45 PM.
I could have worn bib shorts but I just stayed in my tights. Initially, I was a little tired but then I got into it and rode hard. This was a new route that dove deeper into the west side of Newtown. I am always looking for new combinations of roads that have minimal traffic and when combined with the usual roads we ride give us at least a 30 mile route. Tonight's ride was a little over and sealed the deal on a century for me.
