Today was the group ride and it is getting larger by the week. Today Jerry, Jack, Lenny and Aaron fresh from the Olympic training center were at the ride. It was together until we turned off of Janesville road and then it picked up and the ride broke up in to 3 or 4 smaller groups. I got into the first group and it was nice as the pace was smooth and we were clipping along. Have to watch what wheel you are on as Samantha said she got to the back after rolling through and then they said we are not chasing and we are riding our own pace. By then it was to late and she couldn't close the gap and had to ride with the slow group. That is hard to swallow when you are out for a hard ride and you get stuck like that. Going to watch the weather and see what it is and then decide what to race at the 12 hour race. I may just ride the 3 hour and but maybe the 6 hour will tempt me enough to try that, we will have to just wait and see. My parents are coming to get the kids to keep them over night as they don't have school tomorrow. Have to get the kids ready. Later..
