200-km brevet - 5..count them ...5 recumbents!
We did a 200-km brevet yesterday with the AZ Brevet & Rando group.
We finished the brevet in 9:40 - there was 5,300 ft of climbing so I don't feel too badly about the time. Temps were in the low 90's so it was hot too. One recumbent rider had issues withe the heat and DNF'd.
Park Link Drive wasn't bad - just long and constant climbing. The turn onto 79 wasn't bad - just long and constant climbing too. Highway 77 wasn't bad - just long and constant climbing until we dropped down for the turn into San Manuel and then it was more... you guessed it... long and constant climbing to San Manuel. Webb Dr from San Manuel to Oracle was a killer - 15 miles or so of climbs that ranged from 2-13%. At least from there, it was literally all downhill back to Marana - mostly.
It was a good day.
