Peacock's Country Store - Sourlands Tour

Okay ... I did it ... I took my first serious ride of the year. About time I know, but I hate the cold and the wet.

Actually, today wasn't as nice as the weather forecast predicted. The icon showed a sun, but I didn't see even a sunbeam as I rode around.

The route was an ad hoc 25 mile loop through the Sourlands to Peacock's Country Store on the Wertsville Road. The hills weren't as intimidating as I had feared, but there was a cold headwind as I set back towards Ringoes and Runyon Mill Road has a nasty bite as it ascends to Mountain Road.

Not far, but hard enough ... and my legs survived better than I thought they would.

So what's next?
