Bike ride Chatham County

My cycling companion and I took advantage of an unusually mild January day to go bicycling in Chatham County today, around and west of Jordan Lake. The day started with thick soupy fog, but cleared to glorious warm sunshine by lunchtime. It was a great contrast to a shorter ride two days ago in sub-freezing temps (New Years Day).

We even found a brand new tres chic McDonald's Cafe just north of Pittsboro with $1 32oz sweet tea, no less. I must admit, it made for a nice stop.

Today's loop was 45 miles, moderate rolling hills, mostly low traffic, and we did it in a moderate 5hrs, including stops. Almost half a century, and very enjoyable.
