Andrew's Report for Sunday
Around 20 showed up for the Canal Winchester Sunday Morning ride. We started together as one group, but were quickly split up on the climb into Lithopolis. I settled in with the back group doing the whole route and we got pulled along by Tom at 20 mph towards Circleville. The 'A' group was screaming along faster ahead of us, with the likes of Steve O and Dustin R pushing the pace. Eventually we didn't see them anymore. Walnut Creek Pike was a nice road to Circleville with minimal traffic until we got
within 2 miles. A stop at Speedway in Circleville and we quickly discovered how humid it was. Out of town just like Saturday, we then turned onto Tarlton road. Tarlton was a another nice road with some rollers and some nice scenery. We made a stop at the Tarlton gas station to make sure they were open on Sundays. The humidity was staying and it was getting warmer. We backtracked and headed out on 16th, and were treated to a stair-stepping climb that after a turn on Gerhart took us to the top of a ridge with a nice view for the downhill on Hunter into Amanda. Doug W, Brent J, Scott B, and I found Ross G. and Dave S at the Amanda store and we got restocked with some water and food. The 6 of us rode out and pushed through the climbs, and eventually the 4 of us separated from the 2 of them before Carroll. We rolled through Carroll, not needing the last stop and
finished strong with 64 miles around 12:30 pm. Just in time before it got really hot! Was a fun ride with some different roads and great company!

The "A" group was pretty brutal for a Sunday recovery ride, I ended with 64 miles and 19.5 avg. speed, a lot of wind, heat and humidity :)
