Jul-28: Bahama Beach 103-km perm-pop

Irregular / rando friend JohnA met me for an 0700 start to the Bahama Beach permanent-populaire.

We got lucky in that an unexpected thin film of cloud protected us until about 1000.
It was still hot enough and humid enough to "satisfy" us.

Not much to type, today.
Straightforward ride.
Very little traffic.
1 car passed us on Ellis Chapel Rd -- that's slightly above the average.
0 cars on Robert's Chapel Rd -- just slightly below the average.
Hardly any cars on Brogden Rd -- that's a bit unusual.

NC-DOT is resurfacing Old-75 / whatever name that road goes by near Stem.
Looked likely to have new fog and double-yellow lines by Monday.

I worked hard.
Not entirely convinced that JohnA had to work hard.
We stuck together until the bottom of Ghoston Rd.
Then John put 6 official minutes into me in the last 9.5 kms.

My outbound commute:  9.0 m.; 0h32 in-motion; 16.6 mph. 
Bahama Beach 103-km perm-pop:  64.5 m.; 3h53 in-motion; 16.6 mph; 4h26 elapsed
My inbound commute (don't ask why this is shorter):  4.6 m.; 0h19 in-motion; 14.2 mph.
Total ride:  78.1 m.; 4h44 in-motion; 16.5 mph.

Third fastest ride of the year for me. 
In the last 8 days, I've had my second, fourth and third fastest rides of the year.
