Here is a brief ride report. I will post more details later.
We met Bill on the road and we never did run into Dan and Tina but they were out there looking for us. At least 11 of the riders got in a February century! Tony rode his very first century today which is a remarkable feat to have done it in February in his second year on the road.
By the way, thank you guys for tolerating my pre-ride speech (that I hate making) and thanks for helping to make this day a good day. Without you these accomplishments wouldn’t be happening.
