The Tuesday ride is not frequented by many women but those who do show up make up for it in quality, if not quantity.
Dean shows off the T-shirt he received for having ridden "The Frank". Like most who signed up for the 100 mile option, Dean cut the route a little short. More to come on tonight's challenging route during which we were drenched in sweat from a very muggy evening but hey, it beats January weather.
Pretty good turnout for the C group and a total of 34 in all.
A small group of 7 A's roll out, led by Hendra, Steve O, Luke and Pete with new guy Andrew Eastman too.
Good group of B's left behind, watching, waiting to be called out. Not much of a tale to tell about tonight but a very good route with plenty of hills and of course, the Becks Knob climb. The B group finished with 37 miles and a 19.9mpg average on a course that had 2000' of climbing. OK, there is a tale to tell but I'm painting the exterior of the house so got to get that done. Kyle Wingler was here yesterday replacing siding and it was good getting caught up with him.
Tuesday we venture afar to hit Becks Knob. At 42 miles, it is scraping against our available time but as long as the A group does not dawdle, you should be fine. The B route makes a left on Delmont, a right on Crumley and then rejoins the A route at the turn on to Becks Knob.. B route is 36 miles and C route is 33. You can find the link to the A route here: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/3206782. See you tomorrow at 6:00pm, behind Shades Restaurant in Canal Winchester, Ohio.
