Beautiful ride with Frederick and Paul. Started at 7:30 am which was great, although a little earlier would be even better. There were lots of spring flowers and in spots, it smelled like a flower shop! The first uphill (6mi) was long but not technical and required a slow and steady pace. A considerable amount of the ride is rolling hills. Very little water and end of the day can be hot coming downhill in the burn area. Great parking provided by the Buffalo Park Improvement Association but watch out for thieves in the lot. Lost an iPhone and wallet.
