26.5 Mile Pizza Ride
Dana and I stayed with the front pack for the entire ride! This is the first time ever... 3 seasons in the making. Small group, maybe 15 people (the serious boys). The first ride of the season, early start and threat of rain keep most people away. I managed to find the right wheel to stay in about 3rd position all the way through the hills and around the inside. A little yo-yo on the sprint toward the back gate but Dana and I got back on quickly. Some light rain and wet roads on the way back. Had enough energy to stay with the sprinters on the last 2 sprints on the way back. 20.2 mph avg. This is average for this ride. The pace will pick up during the season and with a bigger group. Dana is getting very strong, taking on the big boys with no problems. Good ride, happy days. I celebrated with some T-Bell!
