Saturday’s Bike Ride to Rippey was cold, with highs of nine degrees and wind chills dipping to minus-10.

But it only ranks in the top 10 coldest ridesfor James "Rick" Hopson.

Hopson, of Iowa City, said the coldest ride he can remember was around 25 years ago. He recalls the temperature reading about minus-30when he left his house to make the two-day trek to Perry for BRR, a 24-mile ride from Perry to Rippey and back.

“I was dressed like Neil Armstrong with full goggles and a little respirator and heating packs,"Hopson said.
