the weather was superbe for a saturday morning ghisallo ride. i hate riding early, but if that's when the ride is, that's when you have to ride. i'd estimate that 70 people showed. it was a surreal view from the front of the field, looking back along old olive road, seeing that long line of riders. it was like some pro peleton or something!
after much pain and suffering, there were 12 or 13 guys left at the end, fighting it out. it's weird to say that, but that's the way these things end. i was happy to be one of them, since they are bike racers and i am not...at this time.
