everyone,
Thanks you for the great ride. Hasn't done a fast group ride for sometime. Even though I was hanging on my dear life most of the time, I still enjoyed the ride tremendously.
SVCC: thanks you for the post ride replenishments and babysit the new guy.
everyone: thanks for the waiting and letting me suck your wheel.

looking forward for the next ride...
regards,
Kwan

Thanks Karl/Alex for hosting, and all. A great group to ride with.

Had a blast. "The Challenge" made it a lot of fun too.

And thanks a lot for the tow back by the A group. Lesson learned: don't break off for a nature break when the A group starts to hammer. :)

That was good times - the hardest I've ridden in a long while. Mad props to Dr John for chasing us down. That was a nice piece of work.

Thanks for the photos Chris and everyone else who came out - was good to see some new & familiar faces. Especially good to have Alex out there again.

Average power was 197 Watts for the ~2.5 hours that we were really going hard. I think NP was 221 W and 20 min MMP was 220 W. I'll get a few more data points up soon as well as info on our ride plans going forward.

Cheers,

Thanks Karl & Alex,

Great ride of the day to John! Made the nature stop, caught back on & then schooled us up Bailey. Next time we know who to look out for :D



20 min
Avg Pwr 252
NP 275

60 min
Avg Pwr 219
NP 240

Not nearly enough to catch those guys, but fun trying anyhow.
