"In" Mt. Tirzah, 89-miles down, 38-to-go:
Bob commented that previous time he did Triple-L, there was some good chilli at Hollow Ridge Grocery.
This time, no chilli.
Only chilly conditions all day.
Ricochet Robert had "the music in him" today.
He rode off, with our blessing, from the turnaround in Leasburg, just a minute after we arrived.
Reportedly 9h35 for R-26 (though if he doesn't soon apply for his R-24, I may ignore his R-rides :-O ).
I did not have any music in me on the day.
About 21-miles into the ride, I commented that
The early climbs on Triple-L route were a lot tougher than early climbs on the Bahama Beach route.
However, fast-forwarding, I may have found some cadence during the final 17-miles.
Thanks to Bob -- R-40-continuous for me.
Bob slowed and waited for me.
Maybe more than several.
R-47-continuous for Bob, as he continues to lead the NC-2010-rookies on that front.
[I mention the NC-2010-rookies because Bob asked if I planned on doing an update early in 2014.]
Also 10h45 for Bob.
According to Bob's confuser, the two of did the 127.6-mile (205-km) route in 9h16 in-motion.
I guess that is what doing too few rides, and not hard enough, will do.
