gyp hills century

wind is a four letter word. hill is too! my brother-in-law, my friend dan and i "enjoyed" a lot of both today. the wind was our friend early in the ride. not so much in the middle. good enough at the end. we rode on quiet back roads and major highways through the gyp hills, something i've wanted to do for years! we did a little dirt, too. we picked up gatorade wherever we could find it. toward the end it got hot and we had to take it a bit slower. it was kind of disapppointing to end the day with a 16.5mph average when we were up to almost 19mph early on. guess we'll have to try this route again. well, maybe not the dirt road! (107.6 miles @ 16.5mph)
