8/4 Sunday Morning 40

Sun, August 04, 2019 9:00 AM | Thomas Short

Leader:  Tom Short

Members: Mike Saizan, Tom Roberts, Luis Dall'Orso

Guests: Dwann Buford

Route:  Sunday Morning 40  https://ridewithgps.com/routes/30020279.  An enjoyable route with only 1100 feet of climbing over 40 miles.  Long stretches of nearly flat and excellent pavement.

Weather:  At ride end my car thermometer registered 91 degrees but at no time on the ride did I feel hot nor did anyone complain of the heat. The early 9:00 am start was a big part of our comfort.

AMS:  16.3 mph for me but I was the last person in. 

Mechanicals/Mishaps:  None.

Report:  Tom Roberts, Luis, and Dwann held back for the first 23 miles until the rest stop.  From there it was 18 miles to the finish with only 4 turns and they were off!  I was soon left behind but Mike Saizan stayed with them for about 9 miles until, he said, their speed became too much to keep up with.  Mike waited for me and we rode in together.  I enjoyed the route and the people I rode with.
