The battery in my camera was dead when I arrived for the Tuesday ride (it's on the charger now!) so all I have are these images taken by Joe Twelmeyer and Marty. Sorry about that! It appeared around 5-6 went out at 4:30pm for the C ride, 15-18 for the 5:00pm B ride, 18-20 for the 5:30pm Super B and then I hear around 15 for the 6:00pm A and late coming B's. I did a poor job promoting the event, or maybe there wasn't that much interest, but only Aaron C, Marty and Jon Morgan made the trip south but they represented well.
Out of the 15 or so who left at 6:00pm, only 3 arrived in the first group, Marty, Jon and Brent Goetz, with a 21mph avg. Our B group was at 18.8. Got a big Thursday New Albany ride and then I will be in Maryland for the Garrett County Gran Fondo. Large contingent from central Ohio going over there and having heard mostly good things about the event, the blog will be there too, agonizing through the Savage Century.
Only now, on the eve of the historic Canal Winchester, Summer Solstice ride out of Brewdog, has time run out on my grand plans to promote this with many references to the Alamo, creative photoshopping of celebrities, etc... Unfortunately, like some of you, I must work for a living and was unable to carve out the time for this important task. Even now, I can hear my children crying for lack of food and attention so I must attend to priorities but first.....the route for Tuesday and the start time of 6:00pm for the strong or those who imagine them to be so and 5:30 for the Flyin Tunas of the world, which will include me of course cause I am in the category.
