It was a terrific day. You couldn't ask for better weather. It was great hanging out with a bunch of friends and swapping a few lies after the ride about how far and fast we all went. The food and beer was top notch.

And I felt so much better than after last year's ride, : ). Last year I did the ride with a cold and I couldn't sweat worth a damn. I used a triple and used the 28 tooth inside a few times but I found that a 36 middle running on a 30 tooth outer was plenty for this ride. The Mike Melton, which really is what the British would call an audax bike (it has room for 700 x 28c tires and fenders), is a real trooper that handles long distances as well as any bike I have ever ridden. It is a lovely bicycle to ride:
