A great ride with Sharon's group. Sharon is the navigator and planner. Charles is the Gofer/Dufer/Pilot/Moral Support and most of all, the Grasshopper Remover! :) Also along were Becky, Karl, Steve, Theresa and me.

I started off finding my own cadence which was quite a bit faster than the group; however, around mile 18 they all caught me. Around mile 27, I dropped my chain and wrapped it in the rear derailleur. Took me till the rest stop by the Waurika Dam Bridge Road to catch up. I was pooped.

It was hard to keep salt and calorie levels up. I like going faster downhill, and maybe a little slower uphill. Most of the others were the other way around. We'd usually have a gap of about 100 feet as a buffer, but sometimes I had to use brakes.

We stopped at 30, 50, and 60 mile rest-stops. 60 had flavored ice, and it was good. That helped a lot. I got my second wind and pulled ahead. Karl zoomed, and pulled for a while. I fell off the back, and was passed by Sharon. Karl gave her a run for her money. The rest of the group wasn't far behind, relatively speaking. I think Sharon & Karl beat me by 3-4 mins, and the same for the rest of the group.

Becky's been very tired, and wasn't in the front for the last 15 miles. The tired PLUS the heat were too much. Around 15 miles, I opened a water bottle that was just ice, and dumped it into my shirt. That helped, but not as much as the snow-cone.

Steve and Theresa were a pretty steady, consistent pace. Steve pulled for quite a while too. Throughout the ride, we had several masses of riders join the double-paceline of the CCC group. Sometimes we were the minority of the group, but generally Karl and I... hrm... swept, and the others pulled. They got lots of thanks after the ride.

Overall, the ride had 624 bikers. If the Goatneck wasn't the same day, it probably would have been bigger. Support was great. Lots of volunteers, perfect snacks, facilities, etc. The best part was use of showers, hot tub, and pool at the Duncan Rec center after! Also, the Chicken Spaghetti was good stuff. Everyone was nice and helpful too.

A++, would ride again.

For HH100, I need to get a long-sleeved sun shirt, stay on top of ride-week stretching, pre-load salt, and get better with rolling snacks. But really, the key is staying cool. At 11am, it was just getting bad, and eating shaved ice, or dousing with cold water was the only way to stay alive.

Not sure what I think about the elevation. It's about 1000ft higher than Karl's. I used Baro, and he used iPhone 4S GPS. Both have issues. My + and - match, but who knows. We'll see if other people post stats for comparison. 24 seconds ago

Also, if I'd thought more, I would have added a couple of miles on the end so I could get another Grand Fondo ride for the year. *sigh*

Nice ride to Argyle, Ponder, Krum, lunch at Cartwright's on Denton Square, then back through Katy Trail, Corinth, a stop at Phil's Kia dealership, then on to Flower Mound, and home.

Attendees include Sharon, Becky, Nadia, Desiree, me, Steve & Theresa, and Karl, in order of appearance. Nadia and Desiree called in the SAG wagon at 40 miles, and Karl joined up after he did Tour de Cure. It was mostly overcast, so we only really had some sun on the last hour. A light breeze from the south, sometimes a little cool. Really nice riding weather.

Over 130km!  Thanks to the group that rode with me, and extra thanks to Sharon, Betty, and Norm who rode the whole loop.

VERY windy, making the return tough. Looks like we had about 15mph wind (or so). Varied from 12-30.

All stats corrected here and on Garmin Connect. Wrong on Strava (no wind wonders). Runkeeper is close.
