Cold start - 50 degrees out, shivering as I rolled over to check in. Timing chips were stuck in customs so we all got runners numbers. Figured I would over do it rather than freeze for a half a day - arm warmers, jacket and fingered gloves. Nice and toasty. Jacket came off at the top of Unico. Last big ride of the season but not a goal event for me so more of a training ride especially since I'm at the low end of my fitness now. Wanted to keep the hr under 170 which is 5 beats above my base training max. Didn't quite pull that off but was reserved. I rode with Reger all day which was nice to have someone to suffer with for hours on end. Thanks Joe! Found a few groups to pull us along over to Neals. Had a mini explosion on top of Hogpen so we relaxed for a little while at the top. Perfect weather. Broke 50 on the way down. Had some cramping and knee issues which is to be expected with all the steep climbs. 6 Hours 41 minutes of ride time but we were out there for about 8 hours, 14.5 avg mph, 156 avg hr, 9470 calories burned, 10288 feet of climbing (according to my Garmin). Went to Moe's after. Good cap off to the season.
