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.
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.
