Starting the 2014 Riding Season Early

Well...early for us. Last year the weather kept us inside until the end of May, so we're a month early compared with then. I hope this is a good sign. :)

Our morning calendar was free so we took a short ride out to The Plains and had a nice breakfast at the Rail Stop Restaurant. We took "the long way" home heading south towards Warrenton but sliding east around it past the Airlie House and then south east to Rte 28. From there we took back roads through Clifton to home. We were gone for about 3 hours and traveled 80 miles.

GPS stats:
  • total distance 80.5 miles
  • overall avg 25 mph
  • moving avg 38.8 mph
  • max speed 64.3 mph
  • total time 3:13
  • moving time 2:04
  • stopped 1:09 (unit on all time)
