The alarm went off shortly after I went to bed it seemed like, at 4:15. Drove over to Whitefish Bay to meet up with 19 or 20 other early risers for what turned out to be an awesome ride. 31 miles at around 22.5 mph average speed. I was feeling pretty good, did some work at the front, but I was nowhere near the strongest rider of the bunch.
Great group of guys, I don’t think I’ve ever met any of them previously either. Had some coffee in Whitefish Bay with a few of the Geargrinder riders. I have yet to meet anybody on any of the rides I’ve done in the past few years with a bad attitude.
I will definitely be back to take part in the beat down again. It’s nice to start jamming like that right away at 5:15am – makes the rest of the day seem pretty easy.
