The Ride Baby!

The century was one of the flat out funnest that I have ever done. The hot, humid and very windy weather made it difficult. The groove of the riders was truly exceptional. Everyone it seemed was having a very good time. Our boy Richard through down some huge pulls in the very hot and windy flats that were the strongest of his career. The hill at about 90 miles was a crusher that destroyed the field. Richard and I hammered up this hill while dudes were dropping and walking.

Ride of the day honors go to Flat Girl for a huge rally. At about 50 miles, it was time for Carol (Flat Girl) to hop into a sag wagon. Instead, Flat Girl nutted up and hammer out the last 50. Truly impressive.

Richard and I put in a 18.4 mph average time in the rough conditions which I was pleased with. Lots of long pulls with slackers sucking wheel. We got a little arrogant and Richard fired up the "Bike"pod that allowed us to listen to music for the whole ride. The high point had to be Richard, Barry and I in a paceline, singing to the bikePod while passing people left and right. We rule.

We closed the day with a Chuy's run. Now it it is time to sleep.

I'm very disappointed about the lack of shaved heads.
