Sunday was a long GREAT day on the bike! Usually the words come real easy, but with everything else that’s going on right now it’s all trying to crowd through the door of my mind at once and getting blocked. Here’s a few (blurrrry) pics, some gps data and some stats from the slow end of the pack.
We didn’t see a ton of sights — some pastoral farmlands, lots of guys on motorcycles, and one of the RAAM contestants riding along with a pace van behind it playing house music (leave any other memoirs in the comments section). — but it was a good time with a lot of great friends. I drank nearly 2 gallons of water/gatorade and still rolled back into Baltimore with empty bottles and drymouth. Luckily, Dave #1 strategically placed a 6-pack at our final destination…
Goofed on the route in one place and missed a few hills, but rode everything plus commuted to the start and back for a personal best by nearly 15 miles, so no harm done there.
