Spent plenty of energy on the back making sure we knew when we’re being passed on the narrow country roads. Gladly watched the fast guys hammer off into the distance, forming a nice little chase group for some tempo pace back to town.

nearly squandered the ride and went back to bed but cut the miles short to leave plenty in the tank for garden toils.

40.4 @ 19 max 34.4

83 and SSE at12ish but felt like more, group of 20ish,

Camera stayed mostly tucked away since I spent the first half of the ride sitting on the back calling cars, since we’ve become lax about staying vigilant and keeping the group aware of hazzards approaching from behind.

the guy on the right was serious business:

unlucky double flat, first the rear and then the front a mile later:

Luckily placed near the front when Jay ran the pace up shelling half the group, I managed to ride on the back of the fast group for a bit. Dangled in no-mans land and caught Alexi as he zoomed by, we eventually rejoined the fast group with a little help. Low on power and endurance, the body is not happy about hard efforts.

and done …

55 @ 18.6 max 27.2

Amazing sunrise and three for southbound century mileage for Larry and new guy Des. Rest of the gang off at training camp. Low 60’s to start and low 70’s to finish, overdressed since I forgot what to wear in 60’s.
