Saturday

8 riders showed up. Sebastian rode 50 miles to the start and ended up with 174 miles.  The weather was very pleasant at the start.  The start temperature was 80 degrees which made us feel like spring had finally come.  The winds were steady out of the south but we didn’t notice it much due to the warm weather and the beautiful route.  It was one of those days where we all ran out of water before the finish and had to make an unscheduled stop to hydrate.  The route included a 1 mile section of gravel also.
