Hell Ride:
I'm feeling a lack of motivation to suffer on the bike. I'd like to be faster, but it's not a desire akin to a raging fire inside. That relates to today, because I would have been solo north of town, and suspected I wouldn't have the will to push myself.

So instead, I rolled the helly figuring having people around would keep me honest.

The hills were a success, Alistair Donahue rode the bunch off his wheel, then Bensley broke me by riding past and casually commenting that I seemed to be in reasonable form. It should be noted that when Nick rode past, my heart rate was so frantic I'm surprised he wasn't knocked from his bike by a vein jutting out of my temple.

The return leg did have some interest, with riders firing off attacks almost the entire way, but my part in it was purely reactive, so I don't think it deserves much comment.
