So, 22+/- roll out old #161, into a light head wind out of the southeast. The 4-5 guys rotating off the front seemed to be working kind of hard but way in the back, it was calm and I had time to exchange pleasantries with a variety of folks. George popped out fairly early but surprisingly, Lisa T did too some where short of #310, where we caught the light and glancing down, I saw our average was 24.7mph. We restarted, arriving at the Outville Road turn towards Alexandria with a 25.2 avg. Maybe 1-2 others had dropped back but the peloton was hanging together, up and over the rise on Moots and on into Granville, with a 25.1 avg. after 17 miles My legs were starting to fatigue so when the group turned toward Hankinson Road off #661, I kept going straight, and arrived back at the parking lot with a 21.3mph average. Had around 80 miles for the day so that's not too bad.
Meanwhile, the A group hit Hankinson and broke up a bit. The lead group finished with a 24.2 avg.
