Sharon split off as a second, faster-paced ride. There were 5 at the start. Beverly rolled a little late, and I rolled about a minute late. I sprinted and didn’t catch them until crossing Belt Line on Royal. The intermediate/advanced group was first, then 2 cars, then Sharon’s group of 6, then 2 cars, then me. I struggled up the hill, and passed 2 ladies to catch up to the front 4: Sharon, Andy, Karl, and Beverly. That’s when Beverly began lagging back, and once we got to the turn-off in the warehouse district, the 3 ladies were nowhere to be found. We waited, and it looked like they joined the no-drop group, so we rode on.

That pause, and we never caught up with the intermediate group. The rest of the ride was pretty much the same average speed, a hard push for me. There were a couple spots where I had to brake, but mostly, there was no coasting. We usually kept at least 90 watts into the pedals.

I’m REALLY proud of my average speed for this distance. This is pretty much a new record for me, even if I don’t break any real metric records.
