Bike 1:51:53  56.49 km (1:59 / km) +225m 1:57 / km
BP loops. 6 loops. The ride over to the bath house was pretty chill. "Up and around" segments were all in the 5:40-5:50 range. It seemed like almost every lap we had a car or bike to slow down for a little bit. I didn't mind though as I was working hard. I could hang with the group but I had no extra umph. I was forced to close one gap after climbing Bath House hill but I couldn't have done that a second time. Coming back on W. Lawther we had to slow for a bit due to a car. When that cleared what remained of the group accelerated hard in prep for the final sprint. I hung on for about 200m and then pulled out. As I said, I didn't have high end power in my legs. It could have been the heat, the fact that I'm still recovering from a cold, the other guys are just plain stronger, or all of the above. In any case, it was a hard ride and I sort of had fun. It would be nice if someday I had the legs to be there at the very end.
