Rode the metric century on the Blue Ridge Extreme in Virginia today which happened to fall on my Birthday. The weather couldn't have been better. Relatively cool (after yesterday's 100 degree heat), a gentle sprinkle of rain during the toughest climb of the day, which ended as soon as I reached the top. Good company and the feeling of steady, good-enough power throughout as we wheeled through wonderful scenery. It was the sweet spot in time, the best birthday ride ever.
The only thing missing was I wasn't able to hook up with Bobby C at the start. Cell phone coverage didn't work at our location. Heck, we may have been right next to each other at some point--we've never met before. Hope to hear his report soon.
