Strong wind out of the west so we (Steve, Mark C and John S) headed west on a flat ride toward Airplane Road or something like that before getting on to Ashville Pike and decided to head to Ashville. At mile 18, I had enough and wanted to get back to watch the Buckeyes. Arrived back at the parking lot with a measly 33 miles but a very sore rear end signaling it's not just the muscles that need riding time.
Skipped out of the Sunday morning Canal ride and found out it apparently has split into two groups, those that arrive at the time in the COP newsletter at 9:00am and another group that is now leaving at noon. I rode but only did hill repeats in Granville, where the wind is not much of a factor.
