MACC - One Love Century
101.13 miles. 4:26 front group (minus 4). 22.8 avg pace. 5593 ft of climbing. Perfect weather, misty rain on and off all day. Mark Lininberg and little Mark left alone 10 minutes before the start and finished about 10 or 12 minutes before us. (sick) Spotted Tucker Bob on the ride. Roy set the pace after 35 miles and took what few riders we had down to about 14 soon after. Roy and Terry O'Tool left our group with 45 miles to go and we never saw them again. The group we had stayed strong to the end and everyone worked together (mostly). No where to hide ment LOTS of work. (214 avg watts - 238 Normalized power) I felt slugish at the start but got stronger at the end of the ride. Lots of food, drinks and music after the ride. MACC puts on a great event. Tons of volunteers to help with everything. Even had bottles of water in hand for us at some of the corners on the course though I didn't need it. Only used 2 1/4 bottles all day.
