Northlake Ride - 29.5 Miles
Tough... started well, strong up the Midvale road / climb, up in the front for the sprint next to the Pepsi factory (finishes at the blue sign, now I know). Rain started on the road into the park. Heavy rain. Hammered the climbs because downhill was sketchy in the pack, limited breaking, couldn't see with the rain and my eyes were burning the entire loop between the sweat and rain and water from the other riders it was impossible. I had to sit just of the back to get any kind of sight. I was on the limit the entire loop. Not fun. I don't mind riding in the rain but that kind of riding will be saved for race day rain. I'll bring goggles.
