Well, I need not have been worried. The ride was fantastic. We didn't go too fast so that everyone could feel strong during the ride (and after). We made two pit stops for water and soda (that's a new trick I learned. And, wow, did that taste good after 45 miles of water, Skratch, and Honey Stinger Chews). When we got to the end of the ride, I felt like I could have done more, which is always key on a long training ride!
My new friend, Nancy, loves to take pictures and she took some of us during and after the ride! I love having this documentation of our adventure!
