Cruisin to the ride with a beard 6 a.m.


The group meeting up


Wheel Fast domination

Group of 25 or 30 of us stayed together

Nasty salt stained back

With the alcohol in my blood keeping me warm from the night before, I left my house at 6 a.m. Rode out to the start and met some friends and co-workers. We departed at 7 a.m. and kept a steady pace out to Auburn where the first rest stop was. From there we did 3 loops and rode back into town for 100 miles. The wind was from the west and every loop took us west at some point. We cruised over 30 mph at some points and sprinted others. The overall average was 20 mph for 100 miles and 5 hour ride time. I rode home at this point and ended with 120 miles for the day. Good to meet some new people and ride with others I haven't spent some time in the saddle with in a while. Good ride, thanks to everyone who helped put it on (including my boss Matt who worked his ass off). For most this will be the last long ride of the season....for me, its just the beginning....longer rides still to come with the cool weather!
