MS150 Day Two, A Ride to the Lake

6/09/13 64miles MS150-2

Work in ProgressThis second day of the MS150 started off with another demonstration of what a well-run event looks like: we had breakfast in the dining hall, picked up our bikes from the gym, and dropped off our luggage to be carried to the end. Very smooth.

The first hour went fast, and in the second hour I felt a bit draggy. Weather was perfect, cool skies, light wind (possibly a tailwind as forecast), overcast in the morning and sunny in the afternoon.

The third hour on Sunday was the first time I felt really comfortable on the bike, and I think I made some good time then. I certainly enjoyed the ride.

At the destination on Lake Erie, staff was presenting completion momentos, there were changing tents for getting out of the bike kit and into street clothes, trucks were waiting for the bikes and busses were waiting for the cyclists. And there was ice cream (++)
