Not sure if the person submitting this wants to be identified so it will be an anonymous report from Yesterday was a great ride. We had a nice easy rollout until Mink rd when things picked up. Mink is a busy road that we usually avoid and at least one guy ended up riding in the gravel off the shoulder before hopping back onto the road. I was surprised by the number of people dropped on Mink, the crosswind took its toll. Concord was steady and the group slowed toward the end, they might have been thinking of Stone Quarry.
We hit Stone Quarry with a brisk pace and dropped a couple more riders. Then when heading north on Liberty the pace picked up again and continued onto Sportsman. A few more were left behind.
The rest of the ride was a steady brisk pace with several riders helping at the front. The only attempt at a break was on old 161 where the group was split in half but with John Gorrilla and Shannon working tirelessly to close the gap you knew that it would not last long.
Dave Chesrown showed a 24.1 mph average which I think is the fastest so far this year. I think there were about 12 riders in the lead group at the finish.
