NOVA MC in Fredericksburg, lock up the town!

NOVA MC in Fredericksburg, lock up the town!

As I pulled out of the garage at 9:30AM on January 1st the temp, according the app on my phone, was 28 degree F. So it was a little on the cool side.

The meet up with the Meet UP group, Northern Virginia Motorcycle Club (NOVA MC) was scheduled for 10:30 but I had to get gas, drop of some stuff for my wife (she had to work) and get some cash before I could dash.  I made it to the meet point with only a few minutes to spare, I was there for only five minutes before the group went kick stands up.

Riding through a variety of Virginia back roads we ended up in Fredericksburg, VA for lunch at the Capital Ale House.  According to my app it was now 42 degrees, better but still a bit cool.  The ride had started with seven bikes but one bailed out due to the temp, can’t say I blame her because without the full fairing I would have thought about it as well.

The food at the restaurant was good, I had the Ale House Burger, but the conversations and company were even better.  But, as soon as our bellies were full and everyone was warm it was time to head back.  When I was back in the garage, my trip meter indicated that I had put down169 miles today.  Not a bad way to start the New Year, well after a hot shower to warm back up!


  1. Nothing like a cold ride in the morning to make you feel alive.

    I’ll split you the difference with temps. It was 45C (115F) here last Sunday… even the asphalt was melting out at Kilcoy
