The next ride came a few days later at Creedmore. Jeff (who took first at the Burn and 3rd at Warrior Creek (to name a couple of his many accomplishments)) was there to push the pace along with Jim, Jay L (my PMBAR partner) and Bobby. Jeff and Bobby led this ride and set a pretty tough pace of ~9mph for the first several miles. We ended up with 24 miles, but the first 7 or 8, while not quite XC pace, were certainly faster than 6hr pace. Now all these riders are interesting characters, but Bobby deserves special mention for three reasons: One, he is a bit like me, and two he brought Power Aid and Klondike bars to share with everyone...in honor of our Burn24 success he said.
|The Klondike Bars were soft but delicious. Thanks Bobby!|
Oh, that 3rd reason Bobby deserves special mention...he said he reads the blog, so this is to find out if he is telling the truth or not. :)
