Pre-race routine:

Throw the bikes in the truck and go. My wife and I both did this together-- wife planning on 40 mi Saturday and 40 mi Sunday. I'm planning on 100 mi on Saturday and 40 mi Sunday.
Event warmup:

Wake up, eat breakfast, ride to start line from hotel to warm up. Spend first 10 mi warming up legs (this isn't a race!)

A tough ride this year. With the wind and lack of training leading up to the ride, I wasn't sure what to expect. I still managed to hold over 20 for the whole ride, and did several miles of individual TT style riding of 22+ mph speed. Helped a guy get back with his team. At times I was holding 25+ mph as I was pulling. I found a team holding about 21-22 avg and hung with them for the majority of the ride. It felt good - I was reminded of how great the drafting is :)

Did the ride sunday too.

Warm down:

Stretching and enjoying being done.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training, wind.

Event comments:

Love this ride. It's awesome. Such a great excuse to get out on the bike every year, and it's for a good cause. It is kind of a nuisance to have to raise $250/person to do it, but it's been worth it every year!
