Great Escape Ride Report

I'm a little late with posting this ride report, but really it wasn't much.  That kind of makes me laugh because it was a marker of progress for me in so many ways.

It was a nice day... a little windy, but not terrible, and cool enough to be comfortable.  We had about a half dozen BAM! members show up for the ride too, so it was nice to have other folks there.

The ride was pretty uneventful, other than the super  porta-potty lines at stop 2 (I always pass the first stop).  I felt really good during the ride.  I ate and hydrated as needed and everything *worked*.

We had about a half dozen club members there, so it was nice to see everyone and ride with them, even if just for a short time. 

So the marker of progress for me is this:  Last year I did the 62 mile route of the Space Race.  It started at 8am and took me until nearly 2pm to finish.  This year I did 55.8 miles in 3:18 -- I was done before Noon and averaged 17 mph!  Huge, huge, huge improvement for me!

Winter mad spin paid off for me!
