Flatlands Event

Flatlands Event

Many thanks to the Ken Philhower Team for once again doing all the preparation and work of hosting the 2011 Flatlands Tour.  It may not seem like much work, but it is and the BBC membership is indebted to members like them for what they do.  Great job, team!  The weather was cooperative and we had a really great ride.  And thanks to Janet Goldstein for continually motivating us to go for a personal best...and we did!

What Russ said: Thanks again to Ken, Cindy, and Becky for yet another fabulous Flatlands Tour. Our long paceline -- must have been at least 12 people at the beginning, including Russ, Mike Crider, Chris Tsien, Jeff, Isaias, Robert Beaty, Ross, Craig Martin, and several hangers-on -- rolled out just after 7:30. The weather was warm and humid, but it never got horribly, beastly hot. Sharing the work in a rotating paceline made for a very fast ride (scenery? what scenery?) and several of us managed a 20+mph average. Woo-hoo!

And thanks to Janet for motivating us those last 12 miles to keep that average above 20 even though we were all running on fumes , and out of fluids, after that 40 mile non-stop stretch into the last rest stop. I don't think I've ever ridden that hard to finish a century.

Thanks from here, too! Fine ride. The rain held off, the flies were biting, it got hot--challenging.  I've learned how to survive it without ending up in the ditch like the first time out.

Here's some pictures from the ride:

Thanks to Jeff Adler for the ride back to my motel in Elkton.  I highly appreciated the end of day air conditioned ride.

Re: Flatlands Event

Hello,

I'm a 'newbie' (and my 21 y.o. daughter) went on the 35 mile ride. The ride was a bit long for us inexperienced riders. But, the loop, good map and other helpful riders allowed us to safely and sanely take a shortcut down to 20+ miles.

Very nice, Thank you

PS. Hope I do this forum thing correctly

What do you mean by 'taking a pull?'....Is that anything like taking a puff?

If you have to ask, you were definitely one of the hangers-on. "Taking a pull" means rotating to the front of the paceline to share the work. (Please don't make me sigh heavily by asking what a "paceline" is....)
