Part 3 - Ride Faster
"I love the northwest. Arm warmers in June? yeah totally." – Ira Ryan
“Taking turns pulling at 30mph we crest a hill with a huge drop on the far side. In front, I get us up to the high 40’s. I big-ring it in an attempt to hit 50, damn I love speed, even though I know I’m gonna pay for it for rest of the day. But at 48.8 we run out of hill.” – Tony Pereira
“Somewhere around 50-miles in, on a mild climb, the last before lunch, my legs stop working. Just like that. I try discussing the issue with them like adults, but they aren’t having it. Inside my head, I’m arguing with my legs, cursing Ira for driving the pace harder and harder, and throwing a tantrum. I give up, sit up, signal and tack right leaving the group for the last five miles before food. Which I hope will remedy my situation.” – Greg Johnson
