Hell Ride:
Rolling down to Black Rock for a pre-helly coffee, I figured I'd jump on the back of a bunch. In my mind they were "old dudes", which just lead to great angst when one of them dropped a wheel and I was left staring at a gap that I honestly wasn't sure if I could cover. That obviously lead to thoughts about "if I can't cover the speed of some "old dudes", then how the fuck am I going to go on the Hell Ride when a grade and NRS dudes are smacking off the front?

I decided that I needed two pre-coffees.

I did ok, mostly by hiding out in the bunch, but I put my nose in the wind enough times to feel better about myself and the state of my fitness.
