Nov-06: "Assault on Flat Rock" with ...

The Set-up:

LT and Lee decided to ride at Noon.
Smitty signed on.
I signed on.
But I warned the guys that I might have to drift off the back, and
Let them "tear it up" without me.

We gathered at PUE.
Don't know what PUE is?
Check the "Abbreviations" page.

What course to ride?
LT suggested the Assault on Flat Rock.

In case you haven't figured it out,
AFR is one of our favorite routes.
Especially in the chilly and cold weather, when a 3-hour tour seems like a good idea.


The Ride and Report: 
(More in the way of an e-mail to the guys, really.)

You guys might not believe me, but my legs feel much better now than before the ride. 
AND 
My legs felt much better after that 5 1/2 mile pull than before it.

Thanks for waiting at the top of the several climbs.  
I think you guys had fun hammering the tough climbs. 

Nice day for a ride. 
The wind could have been a bit more cooperative, though.
