Around 30 of us gather in Sugar Grove for Steve Hewitt's tour of 54 miles but what a 54 miles it was!
Kenda Janet with her new, custom made, cycling glasses. Karen Rossi looks on to her left.
John on the left with Geoff and Mark V.
Hey, a Lady Gnar Shredder made it too.
Gosh, even a couple of tri types came out for the hilly ride. Little use of the aero bars on this route!
And we are off, here at the foot of the climb on Pump Station Road. Using supreme effort and all that I could muster for the day.....
....I reached the top to out sprint others who could care less so I could take this picture. On we went, up and down but mostly up. The route included a climb up......
.....Mt Olive. Steep and I observed Eva doing something never witnessed before but I am way too much the gentleman to mention it here. It did involve the bike and shoes but the shoes were not necessarily attached to the pedals at the time. More than that I can not say.
Two groups formed on the road and ours climbed a mountain to reach this KOA camp ground at around mile 30. Nice place.
We lingered to eat and drink and then headed.....
....back onto the road and nice views. Finished with 53 miles, 3400' of climbing and an average of 15.4. Yeah, I know but the descents were kind of sketchy and we were just having fun.
