Here’s my ‘double twitter’ (325 characters or less) summary… 105 miles (doorstep to doorstep. The Garmin was off for a little bit), 2 flat tire fixes, 2 monuments visited, Lunch at union station, 50 miles of trails and great back roads – visited twice, 2 Deviant Dale’s, a burger, and 2 hours of good conversation at Golden West for a chaser. Out the door at 6:45am and home by 9:00pm.
Numbers: 7:54’ | miles – 99.4 | average – 12.5 | elev gain – 5140′ (sez the garmin, which said 3833′ last year – maybe there was some upheaval from the earthquake in August)
Thanks to Bob for putting the ride together, Harry for the awesome job illustrating the spoke card, and all the old and new faces who showed up for a great day! Can’t think of too many more enjoyable ways to kill 14 hours. Now all that’s left to do is start daydreaming about next month (and maybe write more here if I can find the time)…
update #1: ‘c’ group got treated to a stunt bike demonstration as we rolled into Baltimore and approached M&T Bank stadium. Ken posted a small video clip for your enjoyment… As an aside, 4 of the 5 strangest things I’ve ever seen on rides have been coming through the south side of Baltimore.
