Sunrise 50: Ault Park (Hot & Rainy)
This morning was just all around a hard time for me! I forgot to make my coffee last night, so that was the first thing that went wrong. I was up a bit late – which wasn’t that big of a deal – but paired with the group ride in the heat last night (we did a 20 milers out through Indian Hill) I was beat.
There really wasn’t too much to report about Sunrise 50 which is a bit disappointing I suppose. I fell asleep twice at the overlook (haha). The sky was misty and gray, and there was small spits of rain and distant rumblings of thunder. A young couple sat down at the bench next to me and probably wondered what was up with the cyclist that couldn’t stay awake.
The park crew was busy setting up for the big event this weekend, the Concours d’Elegance Car Show. There were tents all over the park in preparation for the several hundred (thousand?) attendants coming from all over to see the fancy old cars. I probably won’t be making it, personally, but if you’re into classic rare cars definitely check it out. You can get tickets online until 10:00pm Saturday night.
Also check out this new local website, venture pax. I haven’t used it much yet but it looks like a great resource for finding local bike routes, places for hiking, fishing, etc.
