It doesn’t feel like more than a week ago….

Here are some pictures of me on the ride. I didn’t stop to take any pictures so I can only show you the pictures

taken of me. Here are also a few taken from my handlebar mounted camera.

I had a great time and despite pain between my shoulder blades that nearly had me stopping early, I rode well and I was strong and I really felt great after the ride.

This weekend is Hartford and Boston.  110 miles for the weekend.  40 in Hartford and 70 in Boston counting the 10-mile ride to and from the ride!

Get up and do it.  You can.  I did.

At the Start Line at 6:40 AM and ready to ride.
