Morning Sprint Ride

This morning I did the Saturday Sprint Ride with SPBRC group. It was fast. I did 49-and-a-half miles at an average speed of 19.9mph. They lost me on one hill. I can't believe the speeds they were taking these hills at! This ride I worked really hard! I eventually caught back up and then toward the end of the ride they lost me again because I had to slow down for a garbage truck that stopped in the road. Once I lost the draft, I was riding at about 23mph and they disappeared ahead sprinting on at about 36mph. I was doing ok until I had to slow down. It took me the whole way back to Grand Performance from Franklin Avenue to catch up to them. Finally myself and another guy caught up a block from the shop so we all finished together. That was a tough ride!
I'm riding with them again at 7am tomorrow, but they promised that ride was at a slower pace and only about 30 miles.
