RR: SART pavement Green River---> the beach Pain Freak, khai, new2mtb, RidetheRAAM and I met up with Mr. Bonk (and friends) and hammered out a great ride. It was pretty cold this morning so we had jackets and other warm clothing on. But, once we got up to speed it warmed up. It was petty cool most of the day and never really got hot at all even with the sun out. The river looked beautiful to me with plenty of ducks, herons and cranes. Lots of "traffic" out there, too, with cyclists, runners, and walkers aplenty. We kept up a good pace of nearly 22 mph going and 18mph coming back. There were a couple of breakaways. RtR had his aerobars in full effect and pounded out 24mph for several miles until we got to the beach. khai and new2mtb also had some pretty good breakaways. I chased new2mtb for several miles at one point and he was pushing the big gears going 23-25mph. Overall, it was a good time. We were having so much fun we didn't stop to take pictures, even though we did huck a few potholes and large cracks in the pavement. Total ride time was just about 3 hours and we ended up doing just under 60 miles total. Avg speed was just under 20mph. Great ride!
