Ride Report:

Brad set a fast pace at the start and he inspired me to try to keep up.  We had a quick ride down to the rest stop where Brad bought me a drink.

After the stop we started to slow down as the heat of the day started to build.  Fortunately, Brad was still feeling strong and pulled me along for most of the second half.

By the end we were both tired and hot but we enjoyed the ride.  Brad gave me an ice-cold water at the end and we chatted for a while under the shade of a tree.

Thanks for the drinks Brad and for pulling me along!

    I think that we both took our fair turns at the front. I was fading badly by the end of the ride and thank you very much for taking the lead on the last road, I was toast! You deserved as much cold water as you would accept! Where are all the other AA riders? Thank you for leading this ride.
