Cycling 3:15:00 
With STLRC, challenged myself with a "Wayne" ride -- St Charles to Portage des Sioux. Very flat but hard pace with Group 1 on way out - often 17-19MPH with gentle tailwind. Frequently "almost" lost contact with group. Wind picked up on return with Group 2 -- still a good pace. My solo Sept rides felt good and this affirmed my cycling fitness - bit better than expected.
