Phil's Frosty Ride, 12/7/22

by Lisa Brill on Dec, 13 2022












On December 7, twelve intrepid cyclists departed on Phil’s Frosty Ride, from TouVelle Park to Shady Cove. It was 36°F and overcast, but the weather was predicted to clear in an hour. Dream on!! Dressed warmly, we persevered and had lunch at Phil’s Frosty, a local ice cream place in Shady Cove. Fortified with warmer fare (grilled cheese, fries, coffee, hot chocolate), we returned to TouVelle. The skies never cleared and the temp rose by a mere 2 degrees, but we had fun. This is a great route, and I plan to do it in warmer weather in 2023. Many thanks to Phil (wearing reindeer antlers) for creating the route and leading the ride. 32 miles, 1350 ft elevation gain.
