Road the full Century on Saturday and the 40 on Sunday (well, actually, the 45, since we missed a turn somewhere and ended up with extra miles.) Saturday was very hot indeed. We were off the road before noon on Sunday, so we beat most of the heat. I heard about the crash on the tracks on Sat, not suprised given the condition of that crossing. There were a few bad tracks on the route but nothing else at that angle. We did pass a rider (female, I think) down a 3/4 of the way on Sunday, looked pretty serious, too. They waved us through, though, since they'd already called for help. Overall, it was a great ride (my first MS ride and only my 2nd completed century) and I'll definitely be back next year.
Oh, I was riding for the Utah Housing Coalition. Only 8 of us but a lot of fun.
This will be the last ride for my trusty old 81 Miyata 710, too (well, the last long ride) I'm getting a lighter bike!
