2023-05-25 Ride Report
46 riders showed up on a cool and breezy Thursday evening. Unlike most pre-rides, we were all gathering in the sun to stay warm before we sped off in search of the perfect ride. The Northeast wind made for a challenging return leg. Especially on Monclova road where it seemed there was no draft and we all were buffeted by the wind to some extent.
Group 1 (Hot 1): Ben's group came in at at an even 24 mph. Ben was worried that they would come in at less than 24... Ben's report can be viewed:
Group 2 (Hot 2): Tim Eckel and his merry band of riders came in with an average of 21.8 mph
Group 3 (Xtra Spicy): Kris Jensen filled in for Douglas and his group of Hot 2 wannabes came with an average of 21.1
Group 3.5 (A little less Xtra Spicy): Traci led a spirited and disciplined group to a 20.2 mph average.
Group 4 (Spicy Plus): Keith led the group to a nice 17.8 mph average
Group 5 (Spicy): Mark and David led the group to a 16.4 mph average. And they had anew rider (Kathryn) who was impressive with her ability to pick up group riding etiquette (Dave and Mark couching) and her pulling abilities.
Group 6 (GLR): No report
