I'm bumped to the 24th as well. I was thinking of withdrawing, but now that Gabhan will be there to laugh at me, I'll give it a shot.

Hey Gabhan...many thanks to you, the board, our sponsors and the badass SRCC members out on the rides. It's has been a great year!

We're on Watson coming back from Dundas. Andy slides up beside me as says, "So, how goes the suffering?"
That's a mighty fine route you got there, James. Brother Ron, Bille and I will be battling it out up at Blue Mtn so we'll ride it another time.
I might be one of the guilty parties. It got a little ragged there towards the end. The Group Riding Skills 101 section on this website is a pretty good reference. Descending while at the front of the group is not covered though. I still have a lot to learn, but something that I've picked up over the years is that when at the front of the group, descents are not for recovery. The idea is to pedal like mad to make up for the aerodynamic *disadvantage* at the front and the aerodynamic *advantage* behind. It's good to be in the drops, but coasting in an aero tuck if you haven't spun out all the gears is not helpful. It's annoying for the group to have to sit up and use their brakes on a nice long descent because a rider at the front is coasting in the tuck position. As usual when running out of gas, rotate thru or signal and fade to the back. Great ride last night! Thanks Adam. -Wilfred

I'm a map guy. Tonight's ride looks good on a map. There's something special about that.

Is 1st Line/Rd 29 under construction north of Arkell Rd? I thought I saw signs the other day.

Yeah..."Dutch hills." I was channeling Terpstra (thank goodness for the compact chainset).

I didn't expect to meet the man with the hammer today. Thanks for waiting up after the 6th line hill, but it was not to be. I made my way back and am now eating humble pie...literally. -Wilfred
This explains why I couldn't catch you guys tonight. I was late and had you in my sights several times, but just couldn't pull it off. (Of course it didn't help that I missed the Campbellville Rd turn and went down to Concession 11.)

Thanks to the Gord's, the B group kept a respectable post-selection pace as well. Great ride.

Solo'd the Domestique route this aft. Awesome ride. Cooler than when you guys did it mid-July. Climbing Rattlesnake after Sydenham and Snake Rds definitely got the quads barking.
