    First Organized

    Well the ride was this morning. Got there and temperature was 72 90% humidity with 25mph winds. The first 18 miles where really fast, yeah all tailwind. so rounding that 18 mile mark we get to turn into the wind and hit a hill. Got down to one away from my lowest gear. I did actually hit the lowest gear twice. I only stopped at the rest stops. I went sub 6mph for some of those hills, but I never stopped! I was able to finish the 36 miles with eight minutes to spare. Only caught a few sprinkles in the last mile.

    great job! Yes those headwinds can be a killer. Almost best to chill out on the tailwind to save energy for the headwind.

    Good job. When's the next?
    Birth Certificate, Passport, Marriage License Driver's License and Residency Permit all say I'm a Fred. I guess there's no denying it.
