Each week, sunset gallops closer and closer and so tonight we had only 33 miles to cover. Not much to say other than after arriving in Alexandria, a left on Mounts and then a left on Hardscrabble had reduced our group to 6 people, Dennis, Axel, Jeff S, David, Mick (who had fallen back from the A group) and me. But wait, we gobbled up Lisa to bring into the group the relentless one and soon she was dishing out punishment. We turned south on Castel, crossed over to Duncan Plains where we picked up Jon, then a left on Caswell and a right on Miller. We lost Lisa and Jon who turned to ride back to Granville and our pace slackened significantly. We arrived in the parking lot with 33 miles, a 21mph average and 950 feet of climbing.
While I will miss the Hocking Hills Tour, I have heard the market at the bottom of Tar Hollow has closed but Nathan is organizing a free food stop somewhere and perhaps he will post details here.
