105 miles, 11,200 feet of climbing survival. My buddy Norman came up from Florida for the ride, his first attempt. Steady effort all day. Unfortunately Norman's legs started to cramp on the 3rd climb, Unicoi and locked up on him on Hogpen. But he pushed though it and we finished with 7 hours of ride time (15 mph avg pace). I put a decent effort in up Hogpen at 44 minutes. Saw Reger and Paul a couple of times as we leapfrogged each other and a few guys I see on our weekly group rides as well. 142 avg hr, 7665 calories burned. Los Hermanos for diner and DQ to finish off the night!
