Sunday Ride: Kneeland

Ryan called me up Saturday evening about riding. Sunday's weather forecast was 90% chance of rain after 10 AM. I tentatively agreed.

At a quarter past 9 we rolled out from Arcata. I met two strong young cross- country riders named Matt and Winston. The later is the captain of HSU cycling and an accomplished racer.

Near Freshwater
We rode to Kneeland Airport up some cutty road and back in 2 hours 45 minutes for 41.5 steep miles. The weather was warmer and threatened no rain until we had returned.
