Another blistering fast Sunday ride, led by Dru... there were two small groups that headed for Goodwood, and both arrived at relatively the same time! I got dropped on the hills a couple of times on the way up and got dropped once going downhill! (how does that happen!!??)

 

I don't know what the exact times were (maybe Dru or Evan can fill it in) but there was talk of 32.5 average and we definitely got home earlier than last week!

 

Good luck to everyone doing Guelph triathlon next week!

Thanks for the great ride all. I managed to hook onto the Jonathan, trash and nick train on the way up and then got to tuck in with dru, Jodi, Evan and a couple of others for the swift ride home. I have to say, i am glad I don't have to regularly chase dru down as he was unbelievable on the Kingston Rd sprint. Where the surge of energy came from I had no idea. All I know is that I put out 1190 watts and had no chance of hauling him in. All I could do was watch him jump out of the saddle and continue to pull away. Calories were just 2200 despite being on the road for 4.5 hours. I need michael's metabolism or a different garmin.

Hey everybody, great ride it was! Gosh, QB, thanks for the accolades, are you trying to make me buy a new helmet for my fat head? LOL I love the sprints! The hills, not so much! Looking forward to next week, hope I have the same legs I had today!

Here are my stats... somewhat slower in average speed than yours Evan, but after Grinder I soft-pedalled home to spin the stuff out of my legs. Oh, and the calorie-counter reads high, I think I have it set to count Buttertart rasins or something...

Trish is not trash, although you did manage to thrash my legs with your pulls! Sorry about that Trish - It must have been a freudian slip given the A is nowhere near the i on the keyboard.
