Who else rode?
Terrific event-my hats off to the organizers for doing just a terrific job all the way around. Even with the BRP detour which was really a non-event in my opinion. The detour was a pretty nice stretch of road to see and ride except for the dirt section. It was really nice to see the volunteers doing handups this year as well. It is also really nice to be able to do a loop and finish at the same place as you start as opposed to a point to point like AOMM and BtB. This is becoming one of my favorite local centuries. The area is just a terrific place to ride.
Yesterday was the first time I was able to spend a lot of time in groups on this ride and it made it so much more enjoyable-especially given the rather breezy day we had. My time was 1 minute slower than last year but my avg speed was slightly higher as the route was about 1 mile longer. Total ride time was 6hr 22 mins.
Between Friday and Saturday I saw and talked to lots of riders I knew who I've ridden with in the past which is always a hoot.
The only constructive feedback I'd offer is the bananas. They were pretty much ready for either banana bread or banana pudding this year!! Otherwise A++ job guys!!
