So, There was an amazing turnout for the ride this morning! Finally got a chance to ride with the hammerheads, and yes it was hammer-time for sure. After the Stouffville Rd. Turn North on Leslie, speed picked up by Mr. Fantastic to 40+km/h. He maintains this speed up all false flats and then we dip in around a small pond and up a hill - barely hung on at 35km/h up the hill with a cadence of 110 at least! Once everyone else caught up, the pace just got faster! Then the tarts..... See pics and at the end we ran into QB.. who was coming back from Golf. Little motor-pacing didn't hurt no one:)

How did everyone else make out? I want to know, please post.

Cheers!

D.

We had a good ride down Kennedy. Stopped in Unionville and then Speedy showed a bit later. Didn't stop too long in order to get Trish home on time. I think we did that. Lovely day out there. Thanks for the pix and the motorpace vids! See y'all next weekend.

Ho-lee! Today's ride kicked the crap out of me! The hills, the wind,... I was dyin'!!! Thanks for being such a fabulous riding partner, Brooke! And thanks so much to Trish, Christophe, Nick, Andre' and Paul for breaking the wind for us - you guys were fabulous - I wouldn't have made it back without you! Trish, you made chugging up those hills look easy! I can't believe the rest of you guys can ride so fast - you're all amazing! Maybe by next season I'll be strong enough to make the trek all the way to Butter Tart Heaven... I'm going to print out all those butter tart pictures and tape them to my handlebars.

And the motorpace photos were hilarious! Nice ride QB! You were hardly breaking a sweat, but going so fast!

Dan now that there is video evidence, we'll have to call you Dan the Draft Master.

Thanks Jeff..... Not sure if I like that nick name.... seems that I like to take it easy..... which is definitely not the case when the thing you're drafting decides to pick up the pace!

Glad you all enjoyed today in the respective groups and distances. My goal was accomplished, full inclusiveness!

Cheers.

Gotta get the Tarts! I made sure to take pictures of all of them so you could set the goal to get to Goodwood.:)

That was one of the fastest four hour rides I have ever done. Didn't eat enough or drink enough, but I (mostly) got away with it until the very end. An absolute blast. And major thanks to Mr. Fantastik for lending me a wheel for the last 3 or 4 km so I didn't get dropped!

Hey Dave, you're super strong! Considering your drivetrain ratios and cross bike, you are a serious contender in the months to come!

Glad to have you on board!
