Saturday morning I'll be riding with Team Nebo Ridge's TdC group (currently at 40 strong) at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Most of them are going for a sub-4 hour century, but that won't be me. I'll hang with them and help as long as I can, but so far I've only worked my way up to the bottom tier of the B group rides (18-19 mph average on roads with traffic stops and some very gentle terrain). I suspect I can hang with the fast riders for a lap or two, but at that point, I (and I hope a few others like me) will need to pull off to ride at a less insane pace, or else I won't have the legs to do much of anything more.
The only things I have going for me are the facts that I'm a faster rider than I was at this time last year, and my mileage base for the season is over 700 compared to just over 200 when I did this ride as a metric century last year.
Wish me luck!
