    She likes to jump the *** so she can brag about being the first to start the thread for ride reports -

    In that case, I'm guessing she'll start a thread tomorrow for the Stagecoach Century 2007 Report or something . . .

    Looking forward to the reports myself!

    I can't take credit...someone else made me do it, though I can't remember who it was now.

    All I'm gonna say is that its darned hard to ride in 300mph headwinds AND, its hard to stay upright with the same winds as crosswinds I am never getting any of those flat spoked wheels, that's for sure! However, after we changed directions and were no longer in the headwinds, it was a fabulous ride! I had no idea the north side of 10 had such beautiful scenery.... it was very great

    I got to meet DaveSANYZ and met up w/him, Jason, Melissa, Matt, Caligurl, SirLance, and VMC for food afterwards along with a stop at cold stone... YUMMY!!! Jason, however, looked as if he was going to fall asleep in his food and I'm very glad Dave was driving!

    Thank you SirLance for the SAG detail... even though I'm bummed you didn't get to ride, it was nice to know you'd come find us if we didn't show up!

    More later... gotta take a shower

    I had a great time riding with everyone today. The crosswinds and headwinds truly sucked at the beginning. We did under 11 MPH average for the first hour on essentially flat terrain. I never thought I'd be so proud to help pull a paceline at 9.x MPH. But that's the speed we settled into in the headwinds, though we did manage an amazing 10.x MPH on a slight downhill. Of course, once we turned so that the wind was to our backs, speeds picked up dramatically.

    The first SAG stop couldn't come soon enough. Having not eaten breakfast and having fought the wind so hard (and probably also just catching up on eating from yesterday), I was happy to stand there and keep shoving food in my mouth for a really long time. The riding between the first and second stops was great. Some rolling terrain, plenty of tailwinds, and very few cars. Just nice long stretches of road going by at rather high speeds. Though poor mateo hit a pothole and double flatted.

    The home stretch put us back in urban riding with some headwinds. But whatever... it was no big deal. (Easy for me to say, though. mateo pulled for much of the time in this final stretch.) The ride was a fun ride, though I wish the wind was a bit milder. It was nice to join everybody for lunch afterward.

    caligurl must be related to the Energizer bunny. She gave us quite a few long steady pulls. And at the end, she seemed ready (physically, if not mentally) to go at it again. mateo and mel are improving incredibly quickly. Especially when fighting the wind, mateo sometimes left all of us behind. (Note to self: If windy, seek out mateo and let him lead the way!) And mel blew right by me on some of the early climbs. And when I occasionally stretched my legs on nice fun stretches of road, when I looked back, more often than not, mel was the one leading the charge. DaveSANYYZ seems to have his distance riding and nutrition much better sorted out. He's a much more consistent rider than he was even 6 weeks ago, not fading as the ride went. Tracy and VMC made rather good time for not having a larger group to help share the work in fighting the headwinds. Tracy did great out there. Great job, everyone.
