I was not the first to drop, nor the 2nd, nor the 3rd..well who is counting but I tapped out at mile 5, yeah, that's right, freakin mile five. I sat up and settled (cause I'm a settler) for getting rolled up by the B group but then...Dirty Dan rode by and I jumped on his wheel. With a nickname like "Dirty", naturally he pulled but on the right side of the berm...that dirty, dirty Dan so I had to work a bit to keep up. We made it to Watkins. where we made a right to stay on the route. Ahead, a couple of guys wrongly turned left on Morse but we kept going to Wesleyan Church as planned (disappointed though to not be able to bridge to those two). We rolled into Granville then out Raccoon Valley, right on Hardscrabble and continued until we reached a soft pedaling Lori N on Beaver.
All along, our goal was to stay ahead of the B group so adding Lori was good and then soon thereafter, Danny Alarcon, Nick and 2 others came by, having missed an earlier turn and adding to their route. We gleefully jumped on a rode all the way back, finishing with a 20.8 avg for the 38 miles.
