Dry roads! In attendance were Greg K, Lane S and Dustin V. Four is such a perfect number for a TT bike ride.

My breakfast was not enough and just minutes after collecting everyone and rolling out of Leschi I was hungry. In Bellevue I managed to stuff half of the PowerBar in my face and then at Issaquah-Hobart I ate the other half.

We went about 80-90% and tried to work on exchanges, riding predictably and all the stuff that makes a wining TTT team. We have a long ay to go. :) But it was a good time!

When we got to Mercer Island Dustin and Greg had to head home so it was just Lane and I doing the twisties. We slowed down even more here from fatigue but it was still really cool to ride around the corners on your aero bars; sort of like being on an amusement park ride.

God was the sun nice to feel on my face.
