Andrew C sent me these images with a brief ride report. Thanks Andrew. Left to right it's Mark & Karen R, Bruce, Eric the Photographer, Randy Brown & his socks, Mark C.
Decided I would try to start with the A group. Got toasted in the first 5 miles and then popped on the Amanda Northern hill. Rode with a young guy who also got popped on the hill until we got caught by the B group. They blew by us at 25 mph and we managed to get on the back. They took us for a brutal ride that exceeded 25 mph a few times with a tailwind on Goodman road. At one point, I thought I might get dropped by the B group as well. But I managed to hang on and finished a tired and whipped puppy. I guess I should retire to the C group where you can see scenery.
