Covington Century

Well, not all of it. I HATE this ride. Wrong time of year, terrible route (with double back, bad markings and NO SHADE) with 100 degree heat! What a terrible idea. I started to blow up around mile 60 and had a pre-planned escape route short cut back to the car for 76 miles total. I blew up in heat alone and slowed down to a crawl. We were on the 25 avg mph pace with a 164 avg hr before I bailed. Congrats to Reger and Jim for hanging strong. Sucks about the wrong turn.
