18: miles I stayed up with the lead group before getting dropped
20: minutes I rode completely solo before the second group caught me
1: cone I ran into around a corner (but I stayed on bike!)
1: near crash skid when the group all hit the brakes
Too much: spandex, lycra and stretchy pants
Too many to count: volunteers helping everywhere! Thank you!
5: number of times I said “Go red rider”
80.8: total miles ridden by me!
Heard on the ride: “You know what they say…it’s easier to keep up than catch up” (as she and her gang passed me on my left).
