We did the full hundred, but the darned wind pretty much did in my riding partner at about mile 60...even with me doing all the pulling, so I had to slow the pace - cept for about 15 miles of tailwind after the 73 mile rest stop. Ended up in at about 6:40...a full 45 minutes slower than last year...but it ain't no race either.
"Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey
