Another Tour de Mesa under my jersey.

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

It was cold, overcast, real windy, with some rain too. Very unusual for these parts. Last year it was 102 degrees and if memory serves me the year before even hotter. I was able to finish without needing more water and only stopped for a quick nature break. That's a first too. Took home a silver, not to bad for an old fart.
