Moving time = 2:31:24 including 8 minutes on Kasold by mistake
Total time = 2:52:04
My fifth time riding the whole loop and the only long ride this year. I was not prepared for this and the legs complained on all the hills. I stopped often (remove cayers, check map, refill water bottle, eat). I went on Kasold again; I have to remember that the big hill is on Peterson (I have in my head that the hill is on Kasold). I also need to bring a printed copy of the map with me, it's a pain to dig out the phone to check.
This was my fastest min/k on the loop, which surprised me. Still, I was 50% longer than Mean Gene's recent Loop ride
The weather was nice and cool, with a breeze out of the south. I saw lots of people around the arboretum and Burcham Park, and a fair bit near Rock Chalk Park. Too much dog poop on the trail for my liking. I saw cows, corn fields, industrial buildings and the Kaw. It's a nice tour de Lawrence.
Legs were exhausted and filled with lactic acid when I finished. I made it home just in time to see the finish of this year's Tour de France.
