I havn't done a century ride since I left Nebraska, so a few of you might have been on my last 100 miler. I did the Elephant Rock Ride today with a few thousand people - my first organized "ride" not race. It went surprisingly well, in spite of how scared I was of the masses of people. Long lines at some of the aid stations, some idiots crossing the yellow line just before the crest of hills, and general irritation at the lack of some people to use momentum on the multiple decent/climbs. All in all it was a beautiful hot day, Pikes Peak was out in full glory. I started with four people, we managed to ride and end within minutes of each other over the 6 hours we were pedaling. It was fun, but now these guys want to know about the Triple ByPass.
mw would probably do it fixed, frontwards and backwards cause he's like that, but I'm scared.
Oh, and the wife did her longest ride ever today - 50 miles in style. I'm proud.
